Teaching Metacognition

Teaching Metacognition | The Wisdom Frontier | Scoop.it

"Metacognition is a critically important, yet often overlooked component of learning. Effective learning involves planning and goal-setting, monitoring one's progress, and adapting as needed. All of these activities are metacognitive in nature. By teaching students these skills - all of which can be learned - we can improve student learning. There are three critical steps to teaching metacognition:

 

Teaching students that their ability to learn is mutableTeaching planning and goal-settingGiving students ample opportunities to practice monitoring their learning and adapting as necessary"

A wonderful and useful skill to teach our students. I haven't come across many articles on metacognition, but found this on Howard Rheingold's Scoop.it page. Enjoy.

Jane McGonigal and her twin sister, Kelly McGonigal talk about how they each have used the experience of suffering to explore the human experience through Gaming and Wisdom research, respectively. Through Gaming and the Science of Psychology, they each focus on teaching compassion andcreating meaningful lives, in part by embracing the suffering of self and others.

George Por's insight:

This video is one of the pitch vids  selling the Global Future 2045 conference. It is a schoolbook-perfect example of technocratic future prediction, with plenty of excamples of what emergent technologies will allow us to do and to be, with no reference to _social_ organization of work and commerce, how it must change for huymanity to realize its highest potential.

 

We, as a species. will not become sentient just by trusting aritfical intelligence, the internet, and other technologies linking us up if the social division of labor remains dominated by the interest of the few.  Unfortunately, that perspective is outside the horizon of the promoters of technological singularity.

Anne Caspari's curator insight, February 27, 2013 4:06 AM

...seems easy: "So, if you’re seeking to be a Trimtab and make the most difference that you can with the least amount of effort, consider using “emergence by emergency” to further your efforts. All you need to do is find a solution to a problem you know will arise and wait until people come to you. You do, however, need to make your solution visible, as hiding in a cave with it will probably not result in success."

"All you need to do is find a solution to a problem you know will arise and wait until people come to you. You do, however, need to make your solution visible, as hiding in a cave will probably not result in success." OK. so. I have been in a cave for awhile, here in the vortex of the midwest.... and it seems that I need support in igniting that vision into action. I want to be a part of a team.
