Self Management is also known as executive function.
The executive functions are a set of processes that all have to do with managing oneself and one's resources in order to achieve a goal. It is an umbrella term for the neurologically-based skills involving mental control and self-regulation.
Characteristics of self managed students :
Plans, focus attention, remembers instructions, and juggles multiple tasks successfully
They filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses.
Behaviour is dependent on working memory, mental flexibility, and self control.

We cannot organise self management learning for our students. We can only create conducive environments within which students will organise their own learning.
