Metacognition, Self-Assessment and Reflection: Techniques and Strategies to help learners help themselves.
In this session, we will look at why these things are increasingly important for our learners and explore ways to integrate them seamlessly into our lessons (and beyond!)
This session is for all teachers, as we can begin our metacognition and reflection learner-training from a very young age and it’s a journey that continues throughout our learners’ lives, even into adulthood, So hopefully you will also find ways to deepen your own metacognitive and reflective skills!
This all sounds very heavy! But any approach to learning must also be engaging, motivating and fun, otherwise, it would be self-defeating. So come along and have some fun thinking about thinking, learning about learning and reflecting on your thinking and learning.
