Abstract

This paper describes the merging of two learning tools, Vee Heuristics and Concept Mapping, with an advanced learning system, the Let Me Learn Process, to capture the learner uses of metacognitive skills during an extant learning event. Using student interviews and work product, this study traces the effect of a learner's mental operations on the learner's use of Vee Heuristics and Concept Mapping as the learner embeds and retrieves new and scaffolded knowledge. The data collected reveals the powerful effect which this combination of learning tools and learning processes yielded on student achievement. The significance of this study lies in the manner in which it lays open for the teacher the mind operations of the learner thereby equipping the teacher to better mentor and coach the growth and development of the learner rather than shape the learner through a one-size fits all learning environment as is too often the case in traditional schooling.
