Creating a personal learning journal using Pages
Pages is a fantastic tool for creating digital learning journals/scaffolds that can be easily shared with students.
A digital learning journal can not only provide a great scaffold for learning, it can also give our students the opportunity to receive information and express themselves in different ways - using text, audio, drawing, photo and video.
As a part of the Back to School 2023 series, we demonstrated how you can easily create your own learning journals for students using Pages on both iPad or MacOS. This content will be available to view until March 31 on the Back to School Series 2023 site, accessible at: http://apple.co/b2s23
The example I used in the demonstration was a personal learning journal that invites students to reflect on their learning and wellbeing. It shows examples of how students might interact with a digital journal and can very easily be modified and personalised, depending on the students you are working with.
This journal was inspired by many great examples that have been posted to our Education Community forum. I have put together a Padlet to share with you links to resources that I found very useful in this process:

In addition - as a part of the Back to School 2023 workshops we looked at Apple products and resources designed to make learning personal, creative and inspiring. We learned how to:
- Give voice to ideas with Voice Memos
- Get to know our students with Clips
- Reach all learners with powerful accessibility features built into iPad and Mac
Wondering: 🤔 How can we combine these features in the process of creating personal learning journals? What are the opportunities?
