Metacognition through Technology and Teaching
George, Annamma; Kappan, Mini Dejo
Journal on Educational Psychology, v4 n3 p32-38 Nov 2010-Jan 2011
Effective learning merely does not imply manipulation of information, which is integrated into an existing knowledge base, but rather, directing attention to what one has assimilated, understanding relationship between new information and what is already known, understanding the process which facilitated this and being aware that something new has actually been learnt. This article deals with the influence of technology in the development of Meta cognition in learners. At the beginning of any learning activity, students need to list their Pre-requisite knowledge and the knowledge to be constructed. As they delve into their investigation, they will verify, clarify and expand or replace their pre-requisite knowledge with more accurate information. Meta cognition significantly contributes to academic performance and the content may be taught through educational procedures that include provision of Meta cognitive knowledge and facilitate Meta cognitive experiences. This article will help to understand how both Meta cognition and web based instruction play a major role in the new generation instruction strategy.
