POSTPONED - How and why to teach metacognition in science: March webinar
Unfortunately, we have postponed the webinar on teaching metacognition, planned for 25th March. We intend to schedule it during the summer term and will notify you of the date.
"Thought-provoking, "very helpful", "lots of ideas to take away". Join 1000+ teachers who have attended the monthly webinars for latest in our series: Build an outstanding curriculum.
Metacognition means students taking charge of their thinking. It's reckoned to be the number one shared characteristic of high academic achievers. So no surprise that teaching metacognition one of the biggest impact strategies to increase achievement.
But many teachers are less sure how to put it into practice. What exactly can you do differently on a Monday morning to teaching with metacognition?
Come to the webinar and find out.
We will break down a learning sequence into main 5 stages (5As) and show how you can add a metacognitive dimension to each.
Once learners are aware of what they're learning and why, they become more confident, motivated, and likely to persist when things get challenging.
What you will learn:
- Why metacognition is one of the biggest differences between low and high achievers
- How to make students self-regulated learners
- How metacognition builds better conceptual understanding
- How to embed it into each teaching stage
This is a 45 minute free webinar. Thursday 12th March, 4pm, Wednesday 25th March, 7pm.
