Partial Metacognitive Blindness in Collaborative Problem Solving
Ng, Kit Ee Dawn
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
This paper investigates the impact of group dynamics on metacognitive behaviours of students (aged 13-14) during group collaborative problem solving attempts involving a design-based real-world applications project. It was discovered that group dynamics mediated the impact of metacognitive judgments related red flag situations and metacognitive failures. The existence of partial metacognitive blindness was also discovered and two contrasting phenomena could result from this because of differing group dynamics. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
