12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought | K-6 Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"Recently on westXdesign–via scoopit–we found an interesting graphic about naming 12 principles of collaboration.

 

Collaboration is among the most-often promoted fluencies of 21st century learning (along with creativity and communication). However, there are very few frameworks or models that exist to support the development of better collaboration forms. As it is, in many K-12 learning environments, collaboration is limited to teacher-created grouping, or more scattered project-based learning groups that converge on a single project and thus a single goal.

 

The following principles of collaboration (seemingly created for businesses but clearly applicable to learning) push that idea a bit further–with some important emphases on the individual, including:"

Schools are often difficult places in which to collaborate, given the time required. Technology enables online collaboration, but the first step is the mindset teachers and school leaders must adopt. Shared belief is everything.

Yet in many American classrooms and homes, these high-tech tools are severely limited or forbidden. Teachers and parents wonder: What are students doing with these technologies?

The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning | K-6 Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"As academic standards shift, technology evolves, and student habits change, schools are being forced to consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students in the classroom, and project-based learning is among the most successful and powerful of these possibilities.

 

As both a planning and a learning tool, project-based learning challenges teachers to make new decisions about how they plan student learning experiences, while simultaneously empowering students to take a more active role in the learning process."

Schools and educators can't keep up. So many are still using technology tools like glorifed projectors instead of pushing the envelope and using tools to teach critical thinking.

American schools are way ahead of the crowd in terms of education reform. I'd like to see a similar paradigm shift in Jamaican classrooms. Empowering students to be active participants in their own learning is a winning model. TeachThought rocks!
