About this book

Trends and Prospects in Metacognition Research Anastasia Efklides and Plousia Misailidi, editors The mechanisms of metacognition—our knowledge of how we know—have yet to be fully explained, and its development in childhood has yet to be fully understood. Taking as its starting point the discussion about the roots of conscious and unconscious awareness, Trends and Prospects in Metacognition Research clarifies these processes—along with many others—in a stimulating attempt to unite disparate areas of research and theory. The book illuminates both familiar and less frequently studied metacognitive phenomena, bringing new methodologies and fresh challenges to long-held ideas about self-regulation and control, distinctions between cognition and metacognition, the social contexts of children’s learning and metacognition, and the trainability of metacognitive skills. In keeping with its integrative approach, basic and applied research are given equal emphasis as chapters examine research trends most likely to impact the future of the field, including the following: • Metacognition in non-human species. • Tip-of-the-tongue and blank-in-the-mind states. • Fringe consciousness. • Metamemory deficits in schizophrenia. • Metacognition, uncertainty, and confidence among young children. • Teachers’ use of metacognition in the classroom. • Metacognitive knowledge of decision making. Trends and Prospects in Metacognition Research offers researchers in psychology, education, and cognitive science vital new perspectives and insights into their work, with a keen eye toward the future of their rapidly evolving field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This volume also explores a series of new phenomena, not normally considered in metacognition research.  These topics include chapters on the experience of having a “blank mind,” on “fringe consciousness,” and on “feelings of difficulty and surprise.”  These topics open new doors to metacognitive research.  This creativity of topics extends to the section on development and education.  Here, we find metacognition being linked to relationships of children to parents and metacognition in college professors.  Of course, we also find standard topics like judgments of learning and tip-of-the-tongue states.   But the addition of these novel topics should spur new research.  In sum, this is an excellent edited book and well worth the read." (Bennett L. Schwartz, Florida International University, 2010)

"Those in search of a comprehensive, in-depth review of the conceptualization and underlying mechanisms of metacognition—the monitoring and control of cognition—need look no further than Trends and Prospects in Metacognition Research, edited by Anastasia Efklides and Plousia Misailida. With contributions from an international group of authors, the first section of the volume focuses on basic research—the nature and functioning of metacognition—and the second part on developmental and educational implications...This impressive volume describes the convergence of evidence from multiple disciplines, within multiple populations, and demonstrates the complexity of metacognition research. Despite familiarity with some content and issues, new insights are likely for researchers already immersed in the field. Those new to the topic are certain to be impressed and well informed by its scope and lucidly crafted chapters." (Stuart A. Karabenick, University of Michigan, 2010)
