Teachers need to recognise these necessary skills. Many of these skills are now evident in the Australian Curriculum

"So I'm trying to better understand how people learn--not now they're taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies--only not really strategies...Learning actions, or cognitive actions."

How can we help out students become more self-directed in their learning? What tools can we provide them with to help them become self-directed learners (using 21st century tools and skills)? 

This post provides a list of 27 actions. The post states:

"The big idea is that these kinds of “brain actions” are not only the kinds of tasks you can use to create assignments, but more importantly are the kinds of acts that promote inquiry-based understanding. So rather than start with a topic–fractions, metaphors, or racism–you can simply insist on the cognitive action itself. Learners can choose topics of their own, or you can offer a range of topics."

With that as a background five of the actions are listed below. There is additional material in the post as well as another 22 actions.

* Challenge something

* Test the validity of a model

* Study the relationship between text and subtext

* Critique something

* Transfer a lesson or philosophical stance from one situation to another

Interesting how much of challenge it is to distinguish between teaching and learning. That is one of the obstacles to getting self-directed learning to become a mainstream feature in schools.
