Active learning {{#invoke:main|main}} Active learning occurs when a person takes control of their learning experience. Since understanding information is the key aspect of learning, it is important for learners to recognize what they understand and what they do not. By doing so, they can monitor their own mastery of subjects. Active learning encourages learners to have an internal dialogue in which they are verbalizing their understandings. This and other meta-cognitive strategies can be taught to a child over time. Studies within metacognition have proven the value in active learning, claiming that the learning is usually at a stronger level as a result.<ref>[(Bransford, 2000, pg.15-20)]</ref> In addition, learners have more incentive to learn when they have control over not only how they learn but also what they learn.<ref>{{#invoke:Citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=journal }}</ref>
