Abstract

Getting students to reflect critically is considered hard to achieve. This should be addressed because critical reflection is crucial for students to prepare for their professional lives in a complex world. We examined the research method Photovoice to raise critical reflection in students. Traditionally, this is achieved in a social, reflective process of discussing self-made photos. However, the process of taking photos is performed individually, therefore not fully contributing to critical reflection. In the research presented here, mobile technologies were used in Photovoice assignments to turn photo taking into a social, reflective process of taking and sharing. Students’ general attitude towards this approach was examined, as well as towards specific aspects related to anonymity and influence of and on peers.
