What are Learning strategies?
Learning strategies seem to be "tricks"
learners how to help them remember
things better or to do tasks more
efficiently, there are different learning
strategies such as cognitive and
metacognitive of which we will talk.
Cognitive strategies are management skills
that the student himself acquired,
presumably over a period of several
years, to govern its own process to meet,
learn, think and solve problems.
Now some of these strategies:
Cognitive Learning Activities
• Organization information through mind
mapping schemes summaries, etc.
• Repetition and storage of information using
• Communication and use of information by
synthesis reports, etc.
• Customization and creativity right through
brainstorming, simulation and games.
• Regulation, control and evaluation through
tests, bug fixes, etc.
Metacognitive strategy is a memorable "plan of
action" that provides students an easy to follow
procedure for solving a particular math
problem, metacognitive strategies are taught
using explicit teaching methods.
Metacognitive strategies include the student's
thinking as well as their physical actions.
Metacognitive Learning Activities
• Propose and appropriate goal
• Being aware of the objective to be achieved
• Plan strategies to meet that goal
• Self-monitoring process
• Review and evaluation of the final product
