Metacognition: The Key to Driving Deeper Learning

UDL Touchdown: making a play for all learners

About the session

The teacher cannot be the only person in the classroom thinking about the students’ learning. Students must be actively engaged in thinking about, monitoring, evaluating, and reflecting on their learning. Research shows that developing metacognition helps students to apply what they are learning (knowledge and skills) in new and novel contexts, improve their ability to be strategic and flexible learners, and develop resilience in the face of challenges. This session will focus on technology-infused strategies teachers can use to help students develop their metacognitive skills so they can be more active and engaged learners. This work is critical to developing expert learners who are resourceful, strategic, and motivated.
