Teaching metacognition: How students think is key to high achievement

Teaching metacognition: How students think is key to high achievement | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, I came across some interesting research by cognitive psychologist Ronald T. Kellogg.

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

It really isn't, but we need to think about it metaphorically that way. Students and teachers who think about their thinking are building the metacognitive skills required in life.

Metacognitive and learning, they are techniques that help people become more successful learners. Shouldn’t this be a crucial goal of instructional design?
