How can metacognition be used to maximize learning? As society progressively advances at an exponentially faster rate in this age of information, being able to quickly and efficiently learn new things is something that has become more relevant than ever. Because of this, this paper seeks to create an evidence-based study system with an emphasis on metacognitive learning techniques in order to facilitate learning and higher order thinking in the most optimal way possible. Through thorough research of both active and metacognitive learning techniques, this review paper can assist every kind of learner, from students to people in the workforce.

Project review

“I met with my mentor and we would go over my paper, while in my own time, I would do a lot of research for my paper. This expectation was definitely met.”

About my mentor

“She gave me suggestions that really elevated my research paper, like the use of visuals, and really helped with formatting it.”
