What Will I Learn?
Collaborative learning or Co-operative learning involves pupils working with each other being responsible for their own and each other’s learning. Co-operative learning takes group work to a new level. Individualistic learning has generally been the pattern in most schools. The goal is to achieve the best standard that the individual can, regardless of anyone else. It’s all about competition: but the workplace demands team players. Business wants people who are able to interact effectively, reach consensus after everyone has voiced an opinion and work together. This is called co-operation or collaboration and it is a skill that needs to be taught, practised, evaluated and developed in children from a young age.
- Collaborative learning activities can be used in all grades, phases and subjects.
- The course is endorsed by SACE for 10 CPTD points.
The PowerPoint below is just an example of what the course is about.
