Abstract

The study focused on the relationship between the use of online platforms (Facebook and Youtube), metacognition awareness, metacognitive reading strategies and learning and study strategies. The study used a sample of 463 first year students from four private and a public university, men and women between 16 and 23 years old. The authors developed scales to measure the study variables and to analyze the consumption habits of online platforms. The instruments showed validity and reliability. The results indicated a greater use of the online Facebook platform, low levels of metacognitive awareness and low levels of metacognitive reading strategies.
