Metacognition and learning strategies l.jpg

Metacognition and learning strategies


Cognitive processes l.jpg

Cognitive Processes

  • Lower-level processes

  • Higher-level processes


Metacognition l.jpg

Metacognition

  • develops over time

  • Greater metacognitive awareness = more likely to use effective strategies, have high achievement


  • Effective learning strategies l.jpg

    Effective Learning Strategies

    • Overt strategies

    • Covert strategies


    Factors affecting strategy use l.jpg

    Factors Affecting Strategy Use

    • ??


    Diversity disabilities exceptional abilities l.jpg

    Diversity, Disabilities, & Exceptional Abilities

    • Cultural differences in students’ epistemic beliefs

      • definition & purpose of learning

      • role of effort

      • learning strategies

    • Students with disabilities may need explicit instruction, scaffolding


    Knowledge transfer l.jpg

    Knowledge Transfer

    • Positive transfer

    • Negative transfer

    • Specific transfer

    • General transfer


    Factors affecting transfer l.jpg

    Factors Affecting Transfer

    • Meaningfulness of original learning

    • Similarity to original learning

    • Material

      • principles, theories more easily transferred than discrete facts

    • Relevance

      • context-free material more easily transferred than context-bound

    • Cultural environment, expectations


    Problem solving l.jpg

    Problem Solving

    • Well-defined problems

    • Ill-defined problems


    Problem solving strategies l.jpg

    Problem-Solving Strategies

    • Algorithm

    • Heuristic


    Factors affecting problem solving l.jpg

    Factors Affecting Problem Solving

    • Working memory capacity

    • Encoding

    • Metacognitive processes


    Creativity l.jpg

    Creativity

    • Two components

      • new, original behavior

      • productive result

    • Involves divergent thinking


    Fostering creativity l.jpg

    Critical Thinking

    • Evaluating accuracy, credibility, worth of information and lines of reasoning

      • verbal reasoning

      • argument analysis

      • probabilistic reasoning

      • hypothesis testing


    Fostering critical thinking l.jpg

    Fostering Critical Thinking

    • Teach fewer topics, greater depth

    • Encourage intellectual skepticism

    • Model critical thinking

    • Provide opportunities to practice

    • Ask questions

    • Debate controversial issues

    • Help students understand that critical thinking involves considerable mental effort, but it’s worth it

    • Embed critical thinking skills in authentic activities


    Diversity in complex thinking processes l.jpg

    Diverse populations l.jpg

    Diverse populations

    • Respect culture

      • multicultural background enhances critical thinking skills

    • Assist students who have special needs
