    1. During the evaluation phase, learners can ask, How well did I do? What did I learn? Did I get the results I expected? What could I have done differently? Can I apply this way of thinking to other problems or situations? Is there anything I don’t understand—any gaps in my knowledge? Do I need to go back through the task to fill in any gaps in understanding? How might I apply this line of thinking to other problems?
    2. During the monitoring phase, learners can ask, How am I doing? Am I on the right track? How should I proceed? What information is important to remember? Should I move in a different direction? Should I adjust the pace because of the difficulty? What can I do if I do not understand?
    3. Recommended Instructional Strategies Instructors can encourage ABE learners to become more strategic thinkers by helping them focus on the ways they process information. Self-questioning, reflective journal writing, and discussing their thought processes with other learners are among the ways that teachers can encourage learners to examine and develop their metacognitive processes. Fogarty (1994) suggests that Metacognition is a process that spans three distinct phases, and that, to be successful thinkers, students must do the following: Develop a plan before approaching a learning task, such as reading for comprehension or solving a math problem. Monitor their understanding; use “fix-up” strategies when meaning breaks down. Evaluate their thinking after completing the task.

      metacognition spans thjree phases

      • develop a plan
      • monitor their understanding and fix up broken mental models / etc
      • evaluate their thinking after completing the task --- reflection for learning
    4. Some instructional programs encourage students to engage in “metacognitive conversations” with themselves so that they can “talk” with themselves about their learning, the challenges they encounter, and the ways in which they can self-correct and continue learning.
      • how could this be used to help facilitate learning in public / social learning? I've often learned things through asking myself questions / writing notes / etc, and it then makes it easier to combine and share

      metacognitive conversations

    5. Elements of Metacognition Researchers distinguish between metacognitive knowledge and metacognitive regulation (Flavell, 1979, 1987; Schraw & Dennison, 1994).

      metacognitive knowledge vs metacognitive regulation

      • Metacognitive knowledge refers to what individuals know about themselves as cognitive processors
      • Metacognitive regulation refers to adjustments individuals make to their processes to help control their learning, such as planning, information management strategies, comprehension monitoring, de-bugging strategies, and evaluation of progress and goal
    1. Metacognition is "thinking about thinking"

      This is a public annotation trying to get students to think about the use of tags as they study from the perspective of metacognition

    1. I know quite a few STEM folks who ungrade in various ways. Some specific stuff I’ve seen work in STEM classes: project-based learning with self-assessment, process notebooks (like a lab notebook but with an emphasis on metacognition), and collaborative exams.

      to help grow a learning culture / learning environment / peer-to-peer-learning - things like process-note-books could be used as a light-weight way to capture information as people are working.

      same with better tracking of work that people do for projects, etc.

    1. they are often more adept than you at understanding what beginning students need in order to understand the material

      and I would argue a great exercise in metacognition!

    1. Mindfulness has been shown to be a valid approach to treating mental health disorders,” she says. “It has strong scientific support for its effectiveness in the prevention of depression relapse and in reducing rumination. It has been studied quite extensively in chronic pain management, addiction relapse prevention, appetite awareness for binge eating disorder — the list goes on and on.”

      Did not know that mindfulness is a valid approach to treating mental health disorders.

      Great scientific support for:

      • Preventing depression relapse
      • Reducing rumination
      • Helps with chronic pain management
      • Addiction relapse prevention
      • Appetite awareness for binge eating disorder
    2. The act of putting your observations into specific word choices and then reflecting on them, whether through conversation or rereading your journal entry, is an important part of the process,” she adds. “This is why, while I like apps like Calm and Headspace, I really recommend that people find some way to verbalize their experiences after using the app.”

      Verbalizing your feelings and thoughts after meditation is very important in helping ourselves observe our thoughts and feeling.

      This verbalizing can be done out loud or through journaling

    3. Mindfulness involves metacognition, which is thinking about the thinking, and recognizing each thought or moment in its broader context.”

      Mindfulness is metacognition.

      Thinking about thinking.

    1. To successfully learn something new, people must evaluate their understanding, monitor for confusion or inconsistency, plan what to do next based on those observations, and coordinate that plan’s execution. This often falls under the category of “metacognition,” though prefer to unbundle its phenomena.

      To learn something people need to use certain faculties that are often referred to as metacognition.

      They need to evaluate their understanding, monitor for confusion or inconsistency, plan what to do next and coordinate that plan's execution.

    1. Your teacher may require you to use tags for a variety of reasons.

      Tags would also be a great way to practice metacognition! One technique would be to have a list of categories you use when annotating (such as "Evidence", "Central Idea", and "Vocab") and apply one of these as a tag to each annotation.

      The goal is to go beyond analyzing the text and identify why you're analyzing that part of the text. You can read more about metacognition here.

    1. self-reflection, that is, realizing the famous poetic phrase, ‘know thyself’

      Thus the role of metacognition as part of critical pedagogy.

    1. Effect of a metacognitive scaffolding on self-efficacy, metacognition, and achievement in e-learning environments

      This article discusses the effect of a metacognitive scaffolding on self-efficacy, metacognition and achievement in e-learning environments. This is a study of 67 higher education students. Half of the group participated in learning through e-learning with scaffolding while the other group did not have the scaffolding. Not surprisingly, the results show that scaffolding is essential to learning and these individuals preformed better than the group without scaffolding.

    1. By giving student data to the students themselves, and encouraging active reflection on the relationship between behavior and outcomes, colleges and universities can encourage students to take active responsibility for their education in a way that not only affects their chances of academic success, but also cultivates the kind of mindset that will increase their chances of success in life and career after graduation.

    1. metacognitive knowledge consists of personal insights into how cognitive tasks such as memory or writing are accomplished, about what makes particular tasks difficult or easy, and about personal cognitive characteristics and capabilities.

      What examples of your metacognitive knowledge could you provide? Do you trade this knowledge with your peers?

      Learn more about metacognition from Wikipedia.

    1. At some point, it will have to figure all this out. But by then, it may well be too late for it to pull out of its self-inflicted death spiral.

      After reading this article, go back and further investigate any claims you believed may be suspect by clicking on the links, like I did. Think to yourself if the source they come from may have a potential bias.
