    What is this strategy about?
    Self-regulation is where learners are aware of their strengths and weaknesses, the strategies they use to learn, what motivates them, and how they develop strategies and tactics to support learning. This should not be taught in isolation but as part of explicit instruction.

    How does self-regulation affect learning?
    Self-regulation can allow children to organise their thoughts and reflect to transform their mental abilities into academic skills. This is an essential tool for life-long learning.
