Metacognition

You are not so smart podcast

YANSS 039 – Unconscious learning, knowing without knowing, blind insight and other cognitive wonders with guest Ryan Scott

 

Listening to you are not so smart podcast and thinking about metacognition

 

Might be worth looking up this guy's research about metacognition (see Sussex study reveals how ‘blind insight’ confounds logic)

 

Seems like metacognition would be a good conversation to have with students as they consider knowledge

 

Metacognition is your knowledge about the knowledge you hold

 

So if you asked somebody the capital of United States and you feel fairly certain that it is correct then your metacognition is your certainty

 

If you asked somebody the capital of the state of Wyoming may feel like they do not know what it is that lack of uncertainty or the uncertainty is there metacognition

 

The question for students is what is the level of that Certainteed or uncertainty about the knowledge they have on any topic

 

The idea of metacognition starts to touch on the feelings and emotions related to knowing

 

 

This relates to the idea of predictive judgments
