Post Meta-cognition
Hi. Could anyone explain what meta-cognition or meta-cognitive means? I used to be familiar with the term when we did methodology of teaching at uni but cannot remember any more.

It's really deep and indepth but it pretty much means thinking about thinking or learning to learn. It's a part of psycology that deals with how we think, process information, and complete task to learn new things. When applied to teaching, it deals with planning a lesson/task, monitoring the task, and finally evaluation of the lesson.

That'a about all I know on the subject. There are loads of theories based on metacongative studies and data.

(metacognition is the noun; metacognative is the adjective)

Anybody else know more?

Build up! Be positive! Teach hard!
