The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Self-regulated learning is like your own little secret. It stirs from within you, and is the voice in your head that asks you questions about your learning.

More formally, self-regulated learning is the conscious planning, monitoring, evaluation, and ultimately control of one’s learning in order to maximize it. It’s an ordered process that experts and seasoned learners like us practice automatically. It means being mindful, intentional, reflective, introspective, self-aware, self-controlled, and self-disciplined about learning, and it leads to becoming self-directed.
Sharrock's insight:

from the article:

Self-regulated learning also has meta-emotional and environmental dimensions, which involve asking oneself questions like these:

How motivated am I to do the learning task, and how can I increase my motivation if I need to?If my confidence in my ability to learn this material sags, how can I increase it without becoming overconfident?Am I resisting material that is challenging my preconceptions?How am I reacting to my evaluation of my learning?How can I create the best, most distraction-free physical environment for the task?

Metacognitive questions include these:

What is the best way to go about this task?How well are my learning strategies working? What changes should I make, if any?What am I still having trouble understanding?What can I recall and what should I review?How does this material relate to other things I’ve learned or experienced?
