Encourage metacognition

In general, metacognition means "thinking about thinking." In learning, it means "students thinking about what they just learned."

Asking students to stop and think helps them make connections between ideas. It can promote schema abstraction, supporting transfer.

Skilling helps course authors encourage metacognition in students. Authors can add a "reflect" tag, with a question that prompts students to think more deeply about what they just learned.

Authors will have to spend an hour or two learning Skilling's formatting codes. They're specially designed to help authors make skills courses.
