Students need explicit strategies to help them practice and use metacognition in everyday problem solving. In this webinar, educators will learn about metacognition strategies and approaches that have large positive impacts, and then build on the evidence to develop practical strategies for practice.
This webinar draws evidence from robust research including the recent E4L’s Thinking Maths trial, a randomised controlled trial (RCT) independently evaluated by the Australian Council for Educational Research and other meta-analyses. Practitioners will:
- Learn about high impact metacognitive strategies that are effective in practice.
- Discuss how to implement a whole-school metacognition strategy.
- Develop practical strategies to help students plan, monitor and evaluate their learning.
- Understand how a combination of teaching strategies including feedback, self-regulation, scaffolding and monitoring work together to improve metacognition in classrooms.
Co-presented by Dr Katherine Dix, Senior Research Fellow at Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), Dr Pauline Ho, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning (E4L) and Dr Tanya Vaughan, Associate Director at Evidence for Learning (E4L).
