Metaphors for SRL

I think a house thermostat is a good metaphor for SRL

  • hold multiple goals or temperature settings for specific times of day
  • continuosly monitors current state or temperature and compares it to the goal temperature
  • when their is a discrepancy between the state (current temperature) and the goal (desired temperature), it signals the heatpump to come on thereby regulating the temperature.
  • = multiple goals/standards, continuous monitoring, control-regulation
