Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.
"Olemme jännittävän hetken kynnyksellä. Uudet perusopetuksen opetussuunnitelmat otetaan käyttöön lukuvuoden alkaessa. Vuosien työ kansallisesti, kunnallisesti ja koulukohtaisesti on saatu päätökseen. Toisaalta, nyt vasta kaikki alkaa. On aika lähteä toteuttamaan opsia."
We know that thinking in the 21st century seems different. What about teaching? Aside from the presence of dizzying technologies, added pressure for data-based improvements, and a persistent call for innovation, how is teaching different in 2016 than it was in, say, 1984?
Here are a few ideas as a kind of quick overview, with general summaries for each. I’ve added “tags” for each domain so that we can begin to see how existing and emerging initiatives (e.g., personalized learning), trends (e.g., the flipped classroom), and buzz words (e.g., digital footprint) might fit into each.

Suomalaislapset lukevat koko ajan vähemmän ja ilottomammin. Sanavarasto surkastuu: omalla ajallaan lukeva 17-vuotias hallitsee 50 000–70 000 sanaa; nuori, joka ei lue, vain runsaat 15 000. Alle puolet yli kymmenvuotiaista lukee kirjoja vähintään kerran viikossa. Tutkittu tieto lukuhalujen katoamisesta on niukkaa ja repaleista.
