Can collaboration in school ever really be Collaboration? - Ewan McIntosh | Digital Media & Learning

Can collaboration in school ever really be Collaboration? - Ewan McIntosh | Digital Media & Learning | Blog Blasts | Scoop.it

Learning in school is one thing. Heading to university another. Rarely does either truly reflect the incredible pace of change in the world beyond those thirteen years of formal education, where the demands for more complex collaboration and ingenuity test even the best education systems' agility to the limit.

 

Schools have an opportunity to prepare their young people with the robustness and acuity that is required to survive and thrive in this fast-paced, anything-is-possible world. It involves schools spending time like they've never spent it before understanding what constitutes collaboration, real collaboration and not just 'group work'.
