The Argument for Metacognition

Those who advocate a more prominent role for metacognition in schools do so in the belief that being more explicit about the how of learning pays dividends as students are able to become more self actualised learners.

This gives them greater independence and autonomy in their learning and allows them greater opportunities to apply their learning to situations beyond the classroom – real life problems.

This infographic forms a great introduction to metacognition and its impact on learning effectiveness:
