Susanne Nobles

“Powerful reflection happens in digital spaces. In my case study research of high school seniors, individual reflection grew naturally from participating in digital communities of practice. These learners looked back on all they had done in the digital space and saw their personal learning processes and best practices laid out. That is powerful learning.”


Susanne is working with both Digital Promise and Digital Promise Global.
