Metacognitive

Updated: Jul 25

Reflections taken from Zuleika Lebow:


metacognition/ˌ

mɛtəkɒɡˈnɪʃən/noun

PSYCHOLOGY: awareness and understanding of one's own



Metacognitive is understanding how we think about thinking. There is a certain level of understanding about how a person think based on their past experiences. However, as we progress in life, the way we think or how we see out surroundings adapt and change. There is a certain need to relearn how the brain work.

One of the ways of paying attention to relearning how we think is, as mentioned in class by Zuleika Lebow, is to have an objective, and try to achieve it. However, if a person fails in achieving that objective, then reflect on where it went wrong, why it didn't work, and then the method can be revisited and changed. A cycle of self-monitoring, strategy decision, and executing strategy.


Displacement activity: Replacing 'big scary' with 'small scary'. Our brain needs serotonin and dopamine. The idea that instead of stressing about the big picture, replace that with a smaller task that is still going in the same direction.


When the environment is unfamiliar, it can feel as if you are lost in the unfamiliar. However, if a person can adapt to the unfamiliar, to observe and understand, then they're no longer lost.



Notes to myself:

How do you design a problem that is unique to you? What is my way of learning? What works best for me? Look up: Burns and Sinfield grip. Interrogation texts.

Is attention span activity based? Can 'average' be taken out?
