Kurt, Mustafa
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
This study aims to investigate the activation process of metacognition of learners who systematically reflect on their learning using Online Learning Logs (OLL) which were designed to encourage them to think about learning. The study is qualitative and attempts to identify the metacognitive strategies of learners and their attitudes towards OLL. Twenty-five college students registered to Advanced Reading course offered by the department of English Language Teaching at Near East University, participated in the research. The findings of the study revealed that by writing in their OLLs, participants were able to activate their metacognition and use the four main metacognitive strategies; awareness, organisation and planning, monitoring and evaluation. The study indicated the effectiveness of using OLLs in learning situations and strongly recommended that they should be used more frequently. OLL screen display is appended. (Contains 5 tables.)
