How do children, adolescents and adult learners gain a deeper understanding of how they think, feel, and act so that they can improve their learning and develop meaningful relationships? Since the beginning of time, philosophers have been fascinated with how human beings develop self-awareness; this includes understanding one's own brain function, learning needs, and cognitive strategies for success. Most teachers know that if student scan reflect on how they learn, they become better, more proficient learners. Some students may think and process information best in a quiet library, while others may focus better surrounded by familiar noise or music.
