“Metacognition helps students recognize the gap between being familiar with a topic and understanding it deeply.”
“Metaphor and analogy are extraordinarily powerful teaching tools and very often underused,” says Oakley. “When you are trying to learn something new, the best way to learn it is to connect it with something you already know.The formal term for this is “neural reuse” — the idea that metaphors use the same neural pathways as the concept a metaphor is describing.”
