This session explores how technology can empower students to take control of their learning and thinking process through metacognitive practices. We will explore how metacognition encourages effective learning through reflecting, directing, and controlling one's own thinking, and how technology can help guide students through metacognitive activities. We will highlight tools including ICON, TopHat, Gradescope, Pressbooks, and more to revolutionize the way you approach education. 

The Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology offers individual, small group, or departmental training on a variety of instructional technology needs, such as ICON, digital media solutions, lecture capture, technology consulting, and more.
