Term2.png METACOGNITION
Awareness of one’s own cognitive processes and of one’s own self-regulation, or what may be termed “knowing about knowing”. It consists of two basic processes occurring simultaneously: monitoring your progress as you learn, and making changes and adapting your strategies if you perceive you are not doing so well. It's about self-reflection, self-responsibility and initiative, as well as goal setting and time management. [1]
