Metacognition is a neglected area of investment in formal education and in teachers’ professional development. This paper presents an approach and tools, created by a London-based company called Performance Learning Education (PL), for supporting front-line teachers and learners in developing metacognitive competencies. An iterative process adopted by PL in developing and validating its approach is presented, demonstrating its value to real educational practices, it’s research potential in the area of metacognition, and its AI readiness, especially in relation to modelling learners’ non-cognitive competencies.
