Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | Google for Education | Scoop.it

Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work...

 

Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do.

 

That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

1) le categorie proposte per il peer review (utilizziamole!!) - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3Mx1_-3IZ7tRXkzMm8zM2dvZE0/edit?pli=1 

2) le categorie usate per valutare il lavoro di podcasting dei ragazzi: dice l'autore "bisognava valutare una pluralità di abilità/competenze" . proprio quello che dobbiamo fare anche nella nostra scuola italiana./https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hnzI9r6NNwhLDv-LHV0yb72CK5C6d3-xt_k_5zfpuDI/edit?pli=1

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 23, 4:37 PM

"John Dewey believed that education must be " . . . a process of living and not a preparation for future living." This powerful idea is a helpful reminder of the rich, insightful growth and knowledge that can come from deep, collaborative learning experiences."

Therefore, it could be said true learning is about acting out the theory, of rhetoric and reality remaining close, of adults modelling for young people appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours, as those young people, if forced to choose, will copy what you do rather than do what you say!

"According to Code.org, 90 percent of U.S. schools are not teaching any computer science. Eyebrows have been raised this year as the U.K. passed a plan to educate every child how to code.

 

In my opinion, parents of every student in every school at every level should demand that all students be taught how to code. They don't need this skill because they'll all go into it as a career -- that isn't realistic -- but because it impacts every career in the 21st century world. Any country recognizing that will benefit in the long term. Here's how you can start."

donhornsby's curator insight, September 28, 11:30 AM

(From the article): I like these factors because they emphasize behaviors, not traits. We can all incorporate idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration into our commands if we take deliberate steps to do so.  We can all be like my former Sergeant Major or my first Commander if we ask ourselves the following:


What can I do to provide a vision, a sense of mission, and instill pride in my organization?


What can I do to inspire and motivate my organization?


What can I do to foster a command climate that stimulates intellectual growth in my organization?


What can I do to help my subordinates develop to their full potential?


We do not have to walk away from our commands feeling like we just pulled our hands out of a bucket of water. We can make a difference and leave a legacy that will endure long after we are removed from the equation.  Approaching leadership with the goal of being transformational, not only makes the experience more rewarding, it also ensures that the woodpile is a little bit higher on the back end.

Cammie Dunaway's curator insight, September 29, 4:51 PM

A “water bucket” leader is someone whose leadership approach can be likened to sticking a hand into a bucket of water and creating a stir by splashing it around. Eventually, the leader pulls their hand out, and when they do, the water quickly returns to it’s original state. It’s as if they never existed. Even though there was a lot of activity, in the end, the bucket of water looks no different than it did before

The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.

Rebecca Renck's curator insight, August 25, 9:43 AM

This is a wake-up call to something we already know.  Our world is changing drastically and this means in ever increasing relation to how we make a living and how our children will make a living in the not so distant future.  There are two points that need addressed now to support these changes and provide the best way to prepare our chidren.  Point one: we need to continue to modify education so that children get not only a basic skill set but also some specialized education as they become closer to the working age. 

Second,and maybe most important to us as parents, is that without the traditional office where most of us learned our work ethics and personal responsibility, along with many social skills as we came of age and entered the workforce, these things will need to be taught at a younger age.  Whether it be at home, school, church or organizations, a concentrated effort and / or instruction on integrity, self confidence, social skills, personal responsibility and time managament are needed.  Value based personal awareness curriculum need to be as important as math and writing skills. Even more important is the need to integrate more specialized skill and creative arts into their lives. Otherwise a young adult entering the workforce will not only have a difficult time being able to integrate socially and responsibly from a home office but will not have a skill set that he can market as a contractor.

Leadership and management are two distinctly different but complimentary skill sets that all companies need. Leaders make sure the organization is doing the right things, while managers make sure they do those things right. Leadership is about coping with change while management is about coping with complex issues. Both are qualities that can be learned and both require constant focus on improvement. Especially when the organization is facing potential adaptive challenges.

These five steps may seem very simple but they are often taken for granted. To give direction a leader must take ownership and have a vision. Managing conflict and providing protection are often not pleasant and require great maturity from leaders. Shaping the norms and clarifying roles is often not given a very high priority as it involves intangible people skills.
