Problem Solving

  • Metacognitive knowledge: What you know about yourself and others in terms of thinking and learning processes.
  • Metacognitive regulation: The methods you use to control your learning.
  • Metacognitive experiences: The thoughts and feelings you have during your learning process.
  • Declarative knowledge: the knowledge you have about your learning style and about what the factors that influence you.
  • Procedural knowledge: what you know about learning in general - strategies you found or that you have already applied.
  • Conditional knowledge: it refers to knowing when and why you should use declarative and procedural knowledge.

You need to master these skills:

  • Planning: think about the right learning methods you will use for learning something new and the way you will manage your time and energy.
  • Monitoring: be aware of your progress while learning; don't be passive and always question everything.
  • Evaluating: when you finish a chunk, consider your performance and assess the strategies you used.
