Showing teachers how to develop students’ self-regulation, emotional control, and independence.
Metacognition is often defined as “thinking about thinking”, or “learning to learn” – it is the ability to reflect and critically analyse what you think and choose helpful thought processes. It has been highlighted by The Education Endowment Foundation as one of the most cost-effective ways to help students improve their learning.
Our Metacognition: Practical Strategies teacher CPD workshop will help your staff learn more about what metacognition is, how to use it in the classroom and, above all, how to help students develop independent learning skills and strategies.
We also recommend our Metacognition: Plan, Do, Review CPD workshop as an add-on to this one.
