Metacognition and Learning at Beaumont

Metacognitive Knowledge: knowledge that a learner has about the task at hand, what they know about themselves as a learner, and what learning strategies they know which will help them to complete the task.

Metacognitive Regulation: the learner’s ability to plan, monitor and evaluate their own learning whilst completing the task. This is about actively applying their metacognitive knowledge in real time.

Metacognitive Mindset: the extent to which a learner wants to perform a task, related closely to their interest in the task and belief in their ability to succeed (self-efficacy) and how much they believe in themselves.
