Abstract

This paper focuses on the important role of cognitive and metacognitive processing in optimizing learning with technology in order to help educators adapt to the Millennial student who is a ubiquitous user of technology and who is faced with the challenge of learning increasingly complex knowledge in a “flat” competitive world. It reviews recent research in metacognitive and cognitive processing that has been directed specifically toward learning in computer based learning environments (CBLEs), and includes a focus on the critical role of cognitive strategies, self regulated learning (SLR) and cognitive overload in technology enriched learning and teaching.
