We are at a point in time when new ideas are published every day with claims about 'best practice' in the classroom. In many ways, this is an amazing place to be and an indication that the profession is taking ownership of its destiny. Social media has made sharing ideas so easy, and teachers have access to suggestions from around the world.

At the same time as being exciting, this comes with a possible danger. The raft of ideas that are available and badged as 'best practice' are often untested in a rigorous or valid way. This means that teachers could be implementing practices that do not actually impact, or worse, negatively impact, learning and progress. In essence, we can get hooked by 'educational fads' with little or no underlying evidence.

This publication comes from a place of 'effective practice'. In other words, practice that makes a difference. Metacognition is not an instantly easy concept to understand, but when understood and actively used, it is a hugely powerful vehicle for helping to unlock learning and progress. At its simplest, metacognition is the ability to reflect on and think about your learning more explicitly.

Metacognition has two key elements:

  • The awareness and recognition of how you are learning and progressing;
  • The ability to self-regulate your behaviour as a result of your awareness.

This publication clarifies the main principles of metacognition and provides practical examples of its implementation. It covers the teaching of mathematics, English and the broader curriculum. A section focuses on metacognition and early years' practice.
