The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
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.

Metacognition: Learning about Learning

Paul Andersen is a science teacher and a technology specialist in Montana, and has this great video on Metacognition. In this video he provides ten tips on increasing comprehension.

 

He also has an amazing number of other resources available on his website http://www.bozemanscience.com/ including science videos, other educational videos, and a journal. He recently presented a TEDx talk about how to use game design to improve student learning. Great resources and food for thought.
