Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We can and students can. Bloom is rarely used in schools today.  We do critical thinking as a rote process and then wonder why students are not very adept at it. I used Bloom's regularly in the design of rubrics and discussed that with students.

This article explores what metacognition is, why it is important and how it develops in children. It argues that teachers need to help children develop metacognitive awareness, and identifies the factors which enhance metacognitive development. Metacognitive thinking is a key element in the transfer of learning. The child's development of metacognitive skills is defined as meta-learning. Meta-teaching strategies can help mediate the metacognitive skills of children, help to stimilate children's metacognitive thinking. The article draws upon reserch currently being undertaken in London schools on raising achievement in thinking and learning through developing the metacognition of children as learners in schools.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I like the way they connected the affective and intellectual. One thing we need to remember is children need great role models. These are in short supply in education where compliance and conformity are the norm.
