Here is a set of “Metacognition” quotes in “Digital Master.

1 Meta-cognition, or learning how to learn, is a vital element of independent learning in an era of rapid and relentless change.

Meta cognition would be where the individual is aware of reaching the point of "not knowing," and then developing strategies to resolve it to "knowing," like how to induce or abduct hypotheses and reflect on them and question them.

3 It is extremely helpful to provide a dynamic lens with which to perceive metacognition as an "epiphenomenon."

4 The metacognitive ability is about the thought processes of developing those learning abilities to acquire knowledge, improve cognitive understanding, build skills, and recognize behavior patterns, etc.

5 Metacognition involves a host of factors including knowledge of task, intrapersonal, and environmental characteristics, conditional knowledge, procedural knowledge, declarative knowledge, illusions of knowing, attention, etc.

6 When we talk about meta-cognition, we're looking at process rather than outcomes. With this in mind, you’d want to observe learners in context while they are learning and try to gather evidence of their thought processes, possibly easier said than done.

7 A big part of metacognition and more importantly, why metacognition is important, is to give the learner an opportunity to be aware of and understand their own strengths and weaknesses, so that they can learn or adapt their skills and strategies.

8 Meta cognition can be assessed just by conversation. By asking questions and listening, we can understand how the individual is thinking. By continually asking how a person arrived at a particular statement, concept or idea, we can deduce how a person is understanding the world.

9 By supporting learners to learn how to learn, critically examine their thinking and reflect thoroughly on what behaviors helped them learn, they will become better problem solvers, continuous lifelong learners and adapt more readily to whatever changes life/work throws at them.
