Meditation & Metacognition! [Metacognitive Tool - 5/20]

Meditation and mindfulness are central metacognitive skills: since metacognition is the personal reflection and exploration of thought and learning - what could be more direct that learning to carefully observe the operations of the mind through introspection? We view meditation as the ultimate form of ‘Deep Metacognition’.

Our ‘Metacognitive Meditation Pack’ focuses on secular (non-religious) meditation techniques; the pack includes everything you need to bring meditation to your school and, unlike other meditation teaching resources, ours is focused on how meditation can enhance concentration, thought-regulation and learning.

The download includes six resources:

  1. An Introduction to Meditation
  2. Meditation & Metacognition: How Meditation Can Boost Learning
  3. Using Meditation to Train Concentration
  4. Meditation & Gratitude: Improving Attitudes, Energy-Levels & Motivation
  5. Meditation Instructions (A Multi-Use Tool With Instructions for Six Different Types of Meditation)
  6. The Whole-School Meditation Poster Collection (Contains Ten Posters!)

It is a useful tool not just for boosting metacognitive and learning power but also for enhancing your school’s PSHE and SMSC provisions.
