Increasing Student Learning Using Metacognition
Research demonstrates that explicit instruction in Meta-Cognition — the ability to monitor our own thinking and learning—can lead to learning success across subjects and grade levels from primary school through college (Baker, 2013; Dunlosky & Metcalfe, 2009; Hattie, 2009; Wang, Haertel, & Walberg, 1993).
When we teach students to “drive their own brain” through Meta- cognition, we provide a concrete way to guide them to think about how they can best learn.
This workshop explores the tools and techniques involved in teaching students to take charge of their learning using the process of Meta- cognition.
Core topics –
- What is Meta-Cognition?
- How does Meta-Cognition support learning?
- The ‘how’ and ‘why’ of teaching students about neuroplasticity of the brain
- Powerful Meta-Cognitive strategies to teach your students
- How to explicitly teach Meta-Cognitive strategies
- How to coach students to use Meta-Cognitive strategies in their learning
- Fundamental Meta-Cognitive questions that students can ask to guide their learning
