Metacognition & Self-Regulated Learning
Self-Regulated Learning occurs when students plan, monitor, evaluate and regulate their own learning strategies. Metacognition is the cognitive aspect of self-regulated learning. Our aim is to help young learners think deeply about how they learn best so that they can become more effective learners and boost their overall learning power.
