Metacognition

Teacher Education is an important and integrated part of the Creative Lion project. This section is dedicated to metacognition (or “thinking about thinking”). Here we will share our experiences of metacognition throughout the project and publish different kinds of material about it, for example articles, videos and downloadable PDFs. We will present what it is all about and how it can be applied successfully in the classroom. We will also include formative assessment in this section, which metacognition is an important part of.
