Metacognition Questioning Tool for Use With Videos [All Subjects]

If you are using a video or documentary in your lessons then this is an ideal way of using metacognition to help students get more from it.

This resource uses metacognitive questioning to enhance learning when students are watching educational videos or documentaries in lessons. It is suitable for teachers of all subjects and is applicable to video-learning activities on any topic: it should be used to enhance metacognition when students are learning from a video or documentary in lessons.

Using the resource is easy: the PowerPoint contains numerous prompts, each with three metacognitive questions. Questions for before, during and after the video are clearly distinguished and the integrated menu allows you to switch to the different sections of the metacognitive process with ease. Simply show one set of questions to students before starting the video, one set of questions during a mid-point plenary, and one afterwards.

The questions deal with a wide variety of different topics in relation metacognition and self-regulated learning: they aim to trigger student reflection on their own engagement with the learning process, thus allowing them to plan, monitor, evaluate and regulate their learning more effectively.
