Abstract

RIBEIRO, Célia. Metacognition: a support to the learning process. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2003, vol.16, n.1, pp. 109-116. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722003000100011.

Based on literature review, this article aims to contribute to the clarifaction of the concept of metacognition. Therefore, it tries to highlight the role of metacognitive strategies to the development of effective ways of dealing with information from the enviroment and with their own thinking processes. It is argued that although there is a controversy over the concept of metacognition, it is unquestionable that it contributes to the learning processes since the training which involves metacognitive activities resulted in better school achievements.

Keywords : Metacognition; metacognitive strategies; learning.
