I was interested in this slide which found on @visiblelearning site on Twitter. This Twitter feed relates to John Hattie's seminars on Visible Learning and his recent research on the same.
We believe that metacognitve strategies are central to student learning. At Freemans Bay School metacognitive strategies are specifically taught through Habits of Mind and Assessment for Learning pedagogy.
At this stage of the year, students, supported by their teachers post explicit goals on KnowledgeNET (Learning Management System). The goals are broken down with success criteria. Students know what they need to learn, their next steps to achieve that learning and strategies for getting there.
As the learning progresses they can reflect on progress on the success criteria and post this up to share and interact with parents and peers.
Metacognition is an explicit component of our teaching and learning process.
