How People Learn


Metacognition is the process by which learners use knowledge of the task at hand, knowledge of learning strategies, and knowledge of themselves to plan their learning, monitor their progress towards a learning goal, and then evaluate the outcome.


Self-regulated learning is not an innate ability, but rather a skill set that can be developed to help students direct themselves through the process of learning.
