If you are using a video or documentary in your lessons then this is an ideal way of using metacognition to help students get more from it.
This resource uses metacognitive questioning to enhance learning when students are watching educational videos or documentaries in lessons. It is suitable for teachers of all subjects and is applicable to video-learning activities on any topic: it should be used to enhance metacognition when students are learning from a video or documentary in lessons.
You can download a free demo version of this resource by clicking here.
The demo version is not editable and contains 6 question slides (18 reflection questions) whilst the full version contains 36 editable question slides (108 reflection questions).
Using the resource is easy: the PowerPoint contains numerous prompts, each with three metacognitive questions. Questions for before, during and after the video are clearly distinguished and the integrated menu allows you to switch to the different sections of the metacognitive process with ease. Simply show one set of questions to students before starting the video, one set of questions during a mid-point plenary, and one afterwards.
The questions deal with a wide variety of different topics in relation metacognition and self-regulated learning: they aim to trigger student reflection on their own engagement with the learning process, thus allowing them to plan, monitor, evaluate and regulate their learning more effectively.
The full version includes both an editable PowerPoint Presentation as-well as a handy, non-editable, automatic PowerPoint show. It's an incredibly easy-to-use resource that requires zero preparation to use: just launch it whenever you're about to watch a video or documentary with your students in class!
