Individual can arrive at their solution to a problems.

The vast majority of tasks that a learner faces will be multi-layered. This means that there’s not always a simple solution to the problem they encounter.

Within metacognition, you can reflect on things that have worked in the past and apply learned logic to try and solve the problem they’re currently faced with.

Learners can control their thoughts.

If a learner has metacognitive capabilities, they can control what they think about a particular situation and develop an appropriate action that ensures they’re not overstimulated.

This always results in higher performance, as the learner has not taken on more they can manage and will be capable of delivering the task’s requirements.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
