Ian Mitchell, a senior lecturer at Monash University, wrote an article for The Conversation regarding students' need for meta-cognition skills.
In summary, Mitchell reiterates that students need to learn about how they learn, and the best strategies that assist them in learning - not just content knowledge. This way students can process the learned information, decide what is important, and present their ideas and understandings in measurable structured tasks.
Wisdom Bird Tutors can assist student develop much needed meta-cognition skills. For example, if a student understands learning strategies and approaches for English and Maths tasks that work they can apply the strategies as needed, or switch to other strategies when required.
