Abstract:The Dutch Education Council suggests that the primary school curriculum should at least provide a basis for students’ self-development. Since teachers do not feel confident teaching self-regulation skills, this study examined which design best suits an instructional method for independently developing self-regulation skills for primary school children grade 7 (RQ1). Based on practical and theoretical analysis, the instructional method consisting of vlog-videos and practicing files is developed and tested in order to determine its effect on the trained skills (SQ 2.1), the self-regulation skills in general (SQ 2.2) and students’ motivation towards learning in general (SQ 2.3). Quantitative data before and after the experiment was collected to indicate students’ progress in self-regulation. Concluded can be that the degree of self-regulation and especially the skills task-analysis, planning and perseverance has increased. Unfortunately, the results showed that more is needed to motivate students for learning.
