Metacognition Sticky-Note Challenges!
  • This session is based around using sticky-note ('Post-It' note) based learning-activities and games in order to foster metacognitive awareness and self-regulated learning. It focuses on the factors, skills and choices that can enhance learning-power: the aim is to get students to undertake metacognitive reflection in a fun and engaging way whilst encouraging self-regulated learning.


    Students will need an ample supply of post-it notes that they can write on and place on the board.

    There are approximately 50 slides, comprised of four main styles of activity: short plenary activities are also included between the main tasks. The PowerPoint is designed to be used multiple times in multiple sessions: do not try to complete all tasks in one sitting!


    Simply run the PowerPoint and work your way through: skipping ahead as necessary using the integrated buttons on the presentation.


    The idea is that you will use a few slides from each activity, as well as the AfL/plenary tasks, in each session: this will keep sessions sufficiently varied to keep students engaged.


    The PowerPoint is very flexible: you can use this for short sessions of 10-15 minutes, or longer sessions up to an hour in length.
