When we can reflect on our past and understand, then we metacognize, or even self-metacognize
Teach me how to learn so I can learn how to teach and teach people how to learn.
I’m thinking we can understand a lot more about thinking and communication by understanding semantics. For example, I am writing an essay about the importance of using reliable sources in academic and professional life. Reliable is the keyword to this thought.
Using reliable sources relates to academic and professional success because it helps us make well-informed decisions rather than uninformed and even misinformed decisions. It also helps us stay connected to people who also value the importance of sound information. I want to rely on reliable people, and I want them to rely on me. This is what makes a team. If any team member relies on unreliable information, and all the other team members rely on the unreliable team member, then the team is unreliable! On the other hand, , if we, as individual members of a team take full responsibility for the validity of the sources we rely on, then we become a reliable team!
Notice the emphasized words in the last paragraph. They are convey the same semantics but are used grammatically different. Do you think this makes for a clearer or a more vague act of communication.
If you teach me what you know then I will know what you know. But if you teach me to learn, then I will learn so much more.
