Designing Metacognitive Activities

Educational Technology Research and Development Volume 49, Number 2, ISSN 1042-1629


Proposes a framework for thinking about how metacognition research might apply to design activities. Examines two basic approaches to supporting metacognition: strategy training, and creation of a supportive social environment for metacognition. Identifies two kinds of content that are taught using these two approaches: knowledge about a specific domain and knowledge about the self-as-learner. (Contains 84 references.) (AEF)
