R. Jayakumar, R. Krishnakumar
Meta-cognitive skills perform better on exams and complete work more efficiently they use the right tool for the job, and they modify learning strategies as needed, identifying blocks to learning and changing tools or strategies to ensure goal attainment. Because Meta-cognition plays a critical role in successful learning, it is imperative that instructors help learners develop meta-cognitively. Proper planning and objectives, monitoring one's improvement, and adapting as needed for effective learning. All of these activities are meta-cognitive in nature. By teaching students these skills all of which can be learned we can improve student learning. There are three critical steps to teaching meta-cognition: Teaching students that their ability to learn is mutable teaching planning and goal-setting. The students are ample opportunities to practice focusing their learning and adapting as needed.
