Abstract

The role of metacognition to promote strategy transfer in problem solving was discussed. Metacognition was stated to be an important factor affecting acquisition, comprehension, retention and application of learning to critical thinking and problem solving. Metacognitive instructions were effectively applied to Tower of Hanoi, set problem and puzzle. The activation of metacognition was recommended in human-computer interactions to promote the acquisition of computer skills.
