Discussions about education tend to focus on those who do the teaching. Let’s not ignore, however, the abundant opportunities for improvement possible at the point of learning. Amy and Mike invited educator Patrice Bain to explain the importance of feedback-driven metacognition.
What are five things you will learn in this episode?
- Why doesn’t study time always equate to commensurate learning?
- How can we discriminate between what we know and what we still need to learn?
- How are retrieval, spacing, and metacognition connected?
- Who is ultimately responsible for learning outcomes?
- How can teachers and learners both harness feedback-driven metacognition?
