I have been struggling to get my head around Metacognition and what it looks like in the classroom. In this episode I go right back to Flavell's 1979 paper where he outlines his ideas and discuss a variety of examples of metacognition in the classroom. I hope you find it a useful introduction to metacognition and a spring board to thinkin about what it looks like in your classroom.
