  • Exhaustive offering of global research in the field, including cognitive and learning sciences to AI to educational technology
  • Only publication integrating all aspects of the fields of metacognition and learning technologies
  • Provides comprehensive overview of learning technologies used to study and foster students’ metacognitive learning
  • Describes features of the learning technologies and how they have been designed to study and support metacognitive processing and SRL
  • Provides far-reaching conceptual frameworks for metacognition and the underlying theoretical assumptions
  • Summarizes empirical findings of effective learning technologies in detecting, tracing, modeling and fostering learners’ metacognitive behavior
  • Discusses implications for design of metacognitive tools and examines theoretical, methodological, analytical and instructional challenges

Education in today's technologically advanced environments makes complex cognitive demands on students pre-learning, during, and post-learning. Not surprisingly, these analytical learning processes--metacognitive processes--have become an important focus of study as new learning technologies are assessed for effectiveness in this area.

Rich in theoretical models and empirical data, the International Handbook of Metacognition and Learning Technologies synthesizes current research on this critical topic. This interdisciplinary reference delves deeply into component processes of self-regulated learning (SRL), examining theories and models of metacognition, empirical issues in the study of SRL, and the expanding role of educational technologies in helping students learn. Innovations in multimedia, hypermedia, microworlds, and other platforms are detailed across the domains, so that readers in diverse fields can evaluate the theories, data collection methods, and conclusions. And for the frontline instructor, contributors offer proven strategies for using technologies to benefit students at all levels. For each technology covered, the Handbook:

  • Explains how the technology fosters students' metacognitive or self-regulated learning.
  • Identifies features designed to study or support metacognitve/SRL behaviors.
  • Reviews how its specific theory or model addresses learners' metacognitive/SRL processes.
  • Provides detailed findings on its effectiveness toward learning.
  • Discusses its implications for the design of metacognitive tools.
  • Examines any theoretical, instructional, or other challenges.

These leading-edge perspectives make the International Handbook of Metacognition and Learning Technologies a resource of great interest to professionals and researchers in science and math education, classroom teachers, human resource researchers, and industrial and other instructors.
