Cognitive Development | Cognitive Psychology (General) | Teaching Methods & Learning Styles
Easy-to-conduct demonstrations are included for students to try for themselves as vivid illustrations of the course material and biographies introduce students to some of the most influential leaders in metacognition.
This is a thorough, and at times demanding, account of issues in metacognitive research. Not suited to an undergraduate readership, it would be an effective resource for postgraduate students or teachers with a developed interest in metacognition.
Excellent book that explains a difficult concept (Metacognition) very clearly. Good book as a reference for students
A useful and insightful text for anyone interested in the study of learning awareness.
Theoretical models and framework provides some stimulating debate and provokes cognitive conceptual challenges. Readers may choose to work through the book from front to back, but would also find it effective in going straight to chapters of interest.
Recommended as an essential text for Psychology and Educational researchers
Aspects of this book will be useful to students on the psychology of learning and teaching module. The section on applications of theory to practice is particulalry welcome.
The content of the book seems high level for my undergraduate students who take "Self-regulated learning" course.
This book will be very useful for our level 7 students
