Possible ways to foster Metacognition
- Activate the previous knowledge of ours students, uniting the content
- Telling to our students what they are going to learn ( explaining the goals
- students must to participate, on that way we are generating critical thinking
- They must know , what they know and what don’t .
- They have to know their own strengths and weaknesses
What is automaticity ?
- Is when we have the ability to have an automatic response and we can develop this concept with repetition exercises and a lot of practice of our learning .
- Is an excessive use of the memory , it happens when we push to the students to memorize to many things .
Create an example of how teachers can change the amount of “extraneous cognitive load” on an assignment.
- Using more didactic activities with attractive visuals ,maybe handmade or in a power point presentation, improving the students knowledge.
When have you felt that you had a "full" cognitive load?
When I have to learn lots of concepts . I think that, when I have to do that I push my brain to memorize .
