1) http://www.improvewithmetacognition.com/

This is a site dedicated to metacognition as the title implies.  There are resources for develping metcognitive practices for the student as well as developing metacognitive practices for the instructors.  The resources include a blog area, an area to share ideas, and research on metacoginition.

Being aware of learning and how we learn (and teach) is an essetial part of becoming a more critical and creative thinker.
