Collaborative Learning

  1. 1. Collaborative Learning Where do I fit in?
  2. 2. What is Collaborative Learning? <ul><li>Cooperative learning is a successful learning strategy in which small teams, each with students of different interests and skills, use a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Each member of a team is responsible not only for learning what is taught but also for helping teammates learn, thus creating an atmosphere of achievement. Students work through the assignment until all group members successfully understand and complete it.  </li></ul>
  3. 3. What does it look like? Let’s do a Think-Pair-Share. Take 1 minute to think to yourself about how the newspaper gets to your mailbox each morning or on the www for the “tech-savy” people. Is one person responsible? How many? What does it take to accomplish this fete?
  4. 4. How? <ul><li>Collaborative efforts result in participants striving for mutual benefit so that all group members: </li></ul><ul><li>gain from each other's efforts. (Your success benefits me and my success benefits you.) </li></ul>
  5. 5. continued <ul><li>Collaborative efforts result in participants striving for mutual benefit so that all group members: </li></ul><ul><li>recognize that all group members share a common fate. (We all sink or swim together here.) </li></ul>
  6. 6. continued <ul><li>Collaborative efforts result </li></ul><ul><li>in participants striving </li></ul><ul><li>for mutual benefit so </li></ul><ul><li>that all group members: </li></ul><ul><li>know that one's performance is mutually caused by oneself and one's team members. (We can not do it without you.) </li></ul>
  7. 7. Another Think-Pair-Share <ul><li>What skills, qualities, attributes do you have to bring to the group? Why would the group benefit from having you as a group member? </li></ul><ul><li>What is something they need to be aware of? </li></ul>
  8. 8. continued <ul><li>Cooperative efforts result in participants striving for mutual benefit so that all group members: </li></ul><ul><li>feel proud and jointly celebrate when a group member is recognized for achievement. (We all congratulate you on your accomplishment!). </li></ul>
  9. 9. What does collaborative learning NOT look like?
  10. 10. SO? <ul><li>Reflection Time! </li></ul><ul><li>What are my goals as a group member? How shall I think, act, respond to others, feel, and say? </li></ul>
  11. 11. SO? <ul><li>Reflection Time! </li></ul><ul><li>Together come up with 5 “rules” for working together on the upcoming project. </li></ul>
