Use It In Your Learning Environment
Self-monitoring can occur in the classroom and beyond. Explaining your thinking during reading, writing, or Problem Solving can promote memory and benefit strategy selection, pacing, and study habits. In the learning environment, instructors can start by modeling their thinking or provide prompts. Instructors or product developers can promote self-monitoring of progress in relation to a goal by providing prompts, guides, or checklists. This allows learners to better regulate their own learning, and gives them the tools to independently solve problems.
