For this week's MOOC, I read an article Metacognitive Theories by Gregory Schraw and David Moshman of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My main question was this below:
Knowledge of cognition includes: declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge, and conditional knowledge. Do all people go through these exact same processes, or are there variations of how people think or learn? Everyone thinks differently, hence different opinions or thoughts. Are the processes the same with slight variations or are there variations of the processes as a whole?
I'm not quite positive how to word exactly what I'm thinking in my head, but my question is as close to what I am thinking. Everyone thinks differently, so maybe people don't go through the same exact processes while they are learning.
Examples of this could be that some people are visual learners, some are hands-on learners, and some people do just fine listening to lectures and learning through that method. Because these three types of people decipher knowledge in different ways, are the processes still the same?
Not quite sure if my questions are exactly what the article was getting at, maybe I read it or interpreted it incorrectly.
