What does Metacognition mean in the classroom?
Put simply, it is viewed as learning to learn or learning to think. Every day in class, learners are given tasks that develop their metacognition by thinking about the understanding of the learning (cognition) being taught. Engaging with this kind of activity deepens understanding, but also develops the ability to think about what is being learnt.
Metacognition skills are not just limited to the classroom but also everyday life outside of school and beyond. Integral to the process of learning is self-regulation. This is about the extent to which learners are aware of their strengths and weaknesses and the strategies they can use to learn from prior mistakes.
Is it often incorrectly viewed that people are born intelligent or only other people get good assessment results. This is a myth. Thinking skills can be learnt, practiced, and improved. With the revision resources below, some hard work and motivation, everyone can see improvements with their assessment results.
