Edspresso episode 12: Transforming the classroom to encourage metacognition, with Shirley Larkin
How young is too young to develop metacognitive skills? And how can we foster environments in the classroom to enable metacognitive skill development? To find out, we asked Dr Shirley Larkin, a Senior Lecturer at the Graduate School of Education, University of Exeter. Shirley discusses her research in educational psychology, which focusses on how primary aged students develop metacognition to enable them to learn in their own way, for their own purposes throughout life.
