Follow-up on metacognition article

Gordon posted an article that gave some strategies on developing metacognition behavior. Problem-solving is a good way to develop this behavior as it not only makes one think, but many times thinking outside the box in order to come up with a solution(Blakely, E. and Spence, S. ,  n.d).  This may involve not only learning the what, but also the when, where, and why which Ormrod, Schenk, & Gredler (2009) state that without the latter would confuse students. I believe problem-solving is a good way to learn. I know creating my first blog was an exercise in problem-solving for me!
