This book is written from a European perspective and is well done and is "of interest to researchers and students in education and computing, to educational policy makers, and to the general public with an interest in the future of learning with technology.
"Self-regulated learning (SRL) subsumes key aspects of the learning process, such as cognitive strategies, metacognition and motivation, in one coherent construct. Central to this construct are the autonomy and responsibility of students to take charge of their own learning. The value of SRL is in its emphasis on the individual as a pivotal agent in defining learning goals and strategies, recognizing as it does how that individual’s perceptions of him or herself alongside learning-task characteristics influence the quality of learning that emerges."
