A collaborative (or cooperative) learning approach involves students working together on activities or learning tasks in a group small enough for everyone to participate on a collective task that has been clearly assigned. Students in the group may work on separate tasks contributing to a common overall outcome, or work together on a shared task. Some collaborative learning approaches put mixed ability teams or groups to work in competition with each other in order to drive more effective collaboration. There is a very wide range of approaches to collaborative and cooperative learning involving different kinds of organisation and tasks.

Peer tutoring can also be considered as a type of collaborative learning, but in the Toolkit it is reviewed as a separate topic. Planning a lesson. Mini Documentary. 21st century education. Dispositions: What the heck are they, and how do we teach them? Educators from all sides of the spectrum seem to agree that it isn’t sufficient for us to support students to just develop academic knowledge, we also need to support them to develop characteristics that will help them to have, ‘Healthy relationships to themselves, to other people, and to learning so that they can navigate their lives in ways that are empowering and satisfying to them.’ – Kate McAllister) This idea is captured well by Guy Claxton’s idea of the learning river.

Dispositions: What the heck are they, and how do we teach them?

The learning river is a powerful metaphor that describes three different layers of learning that simultaneously occur in the vast majority of classrooms (whether we, as teachers, have designed it or not!). On the surface, and most readily observable, we teach knowledge. Deeper down we teach skills and literacies that support that knowledge. And flowing along the bottom, often imperceptibly, is the formation of attitudes and dispositions. And herein lies the challenge. Factor magazine. Planning a lesson.

Why Students Should Write in All Subjects

Instead, she hands her students a treasure map and asks them to write detailed directions—using landmarks as a guide—to the buried treasure. “I won’t tell the kids right away, ‘Today we’re going to learn about triangle congruence theorems,’” said Pahigian. “I want them to instead view it as them experimenting with something and doing something that they feel like they’re really good at.” Students often feel intimidated by math, and transforming the activity into a writing exercise eases some of the anxiety of introducing difficult concepts, she said. In Pahigian’s math class, writing is regularly used as a learning strategy, one that gives her a window into her students’ thinking. Twitter 101 for Teachers - The Basics on Getting Started.

As the pandemic disrupted life across the entire globe, teachers scrambled to transform their physical classrooms into virtual—or even hybrid—ones, and researchers slowly began to collect insights into what works, and what doesn’t, in online learning environments around the world.
