Abstract  Metacognition refers to individual’s cognition about its’ own cognitive process. Great deals of findings have been made concerning the relationship between the metacogniton and strategy selection that is always the metacogniton influences the strategy selection when the research first emerged in 1980s. The present review summarized the new findings about this domain in the fields such as the learning and memory, problem solving, and strategy instruction based on the nearest decade relevant researches at home and abroad. The authors looks forward to breakthrough on the four aspects which should be concluded the regulative use in high level, strategies in the basic memory and instruction, deep operation mechanism, and the new technique used to the research in the future.
Keywords metacognition      strategy selection      learning and memory      problem solving      strategy instruction
