Exploring the world of metacognitive blogging or Thinking About Thinking as a way for students to discover their own learning process. This iterative approach to reflection is a powerful way to help students improve their understanding of how they learn. Analyze the science behind metacognition and how it can be used in your school through reflective blogging. Plus, we’ll cover recent research findings and specific examples from K-12 and beyond.
This session is interactive and personal as you journey into the world of Blogging to Learn How to Learn. The session will provide a basic background to metacognition and the importance of reflection as a unifying process of self-regulation for learning. You will also be asked to join in several experiences in which you will learn new things about your self through the process of iterative reflection.
