    Implications of Institutionalizing Self-Regulated Learning: An Analysis from Four Sociological Perspectives.Stephen Vassallo - 2011 - Educational Studies: A Jrnl of the American Educ. Studies Assoc 47 (1):26-49.
    Researchers, theorists, practitioners, and policy makers have shown interest in better preparing students to self-regulate their learning. In educational psychology, researchers have developed a number of pedagogical models and instructional strategies designed to facilitate students? self-regulated learning (SRL). This effort is demonstrative of the growing trend to make SRL more widespread and systematic within education, that is, to make SRL an institutional goal.

Using Freire’s discussion of concepts such as adaptation, prescription, and dependence, I suggest that self-regulated learning: targets individual psychological changes that render individuals (...)
