20. What if students spent one mentored school hour a week to improve their learning ability?

A lot has been written and explored around metacognition. How do we formalize the concept in schools? What if we helped students identify and analyze their learning patterns, behaviour and showed them the impact changes can make to their performance?

What if the school provided specialized mentors who would be responsible for help the child evolve her awareness about how she learns and to suggest practical techniques for improving performance?

  1. Yes Viplav. Technology provides deep insights on student learning preferences and dispositions. A key aspect is provisioning of mentors who look at these trends and guide/mentor the students. Small classrooms is the easy answer adopted by most western schools. However in larger setups technology adoption is key in bridging this gap.
