How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | Learning Literacies | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

This type of cyberbullying and reckless use of digital communication is rampant among teens, but this recent episode was only unusually due to its elevated publicity.

If educators (teachers and professors) can understand the power of Open Educational Resources (OER) and learn the ways to integrate it in their lessons, classrooms will never be the same for the students.
