Reflecting on one’s behavior may provide an opportunity to discover things that one has not considered in the past. Mental activities such as looking back and re-evaluating one’s activities are known as metacognition. Metacognition is widely known to be effective in various everyday activities such as knowledge-building, decision-making, and communication. In our lab, we focus on how to facilitate metacognition in computer-based learning situations. In particular, we focus on the use of intelligent systems that monitor the learner’s activity and provide adequate metacognitive suggestions. This study shows how effective learning support systems are based on human cognitive models, and this is one of the most important methodologies in our lab.
