For many of us, taking the time to reflect upon an activity we had recently completed to better understand its purpose and value seems decadent….or better yet, intimidating. So, we avoid it- “I’ve got other things to do and don’t have the time to waste”; putting up a barrier to avoid the discomfort of trying to better understand ourselves. The truth is, many of us are not comfortable with trying to better understand how or why we did something. We don’t know how to do it and it certainly makes us uncomfortable to look inward and examine ourselves. Unfortunately, we are selling our learning process short and therefore, not maximizing the value of the experience. The linked article below helps us better understand both the value of, and the process for, metacognition as it helps us become highly advanced learners. Enjoy!
