Teaching for Effective Learning

Metacognition is the process of thinking about one’s own thinking and learning.


It involves knowing when you know, knowing when you don’t know, and knowing what to do when you don’t know. In other words, it involves self-monitoring and correcting your own learning processes. For example, you engage in metacognition if you notice that you are having more trouble learning concept A than concept B, or if you realize that your approach to solving a problem is not working, and you decide to try a different approach.

Metacognition also involves knowing yourself as a learner; that is, knowing your strengths and weaknesses as a learner. For example, if you can explain what your strengths are in academic writing, or exam taking, or other types of academic tasks, then you are metacognitively aware. Metacognitive processes can be applied to learning and thinking in all disciplines and contexts. It is an essential skill for life-long learning, and therefore, metacognitive skills need to be taught and discussed with students.
Metacognitive approach to supporting student learning involves promoting student metacognition – teaching students how to think about how they think and how they approach learning. Why is this important? It makes thinking and learning visible to students

    I wish schools work on metacognition of students so that they know their strengths and weaknesses better. Lack of knowledge about weaknesses and strengths causes waste of energy and lower self-confidence and affects the future of a person.

    I believe that if a person knows his strengths and weaknesses, he can be more successful. For example, a person who always considers his lack of learning as a disability, but in fact, the problem is knowing himself.

    Remembering the material after several times and also the speed of remembering it also has an effective role in the type of learning. Learning the material should be in such a way that a person can make the most of this information at specific times. In fact, when this happens, learning is complete and accompanied by understanding the material.
