Metacognition Homework

Possible ways to foster Metacognition.
1.-Analize the prior knowledge of the students.
2.-Discuss Learning with Students.
3.-Conect the new information with the information that students know.
4.-Self regulation about the strengths and weaknesses of the students.
5.-Monitoring their proper learning.

What is automaticity?
Is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low-level details required, allowing it to become an automatic response pattern or habit. It is usually the result of learning, repetition, and practice.

What is Cognitive Load?
Is the capacity of the brain to understand something, also is the excessive information that the students receive.
Create an example of how teachers can change the amount of “extraneous cognitive load” on an assignment.
Maybe trying to use some power point presentation in a simple way with the minor information possible. Also use things like comparative tables or maybe pictures.

When have you felt that you had a "full" cognitive load?
When I have to learn a lot of information like, dates, concepts, names of the most important people in a specific year.
