Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 2014 8:06 PM

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 2014 9:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

Audrey's curator insight, November 19, 2014 3:03 PM

Storytelling is very helpful in education.  Students can make up their own stories in most subjects  to enhance learning.  Why? It involves emotions, critical thinking and evaluation.

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions | Learning and Development in the future | Scoop.it

Tim Robinson: If our students think that the discussion posting is useless and not at all entertaining. It likely means that it is useless and not at all entertaining. We know this because we often feel the same way when we have to make contrived discussions posts. It’s not that our jobs are about entertaining students, but we do need to do what we can do make it at least tolerable.

 

If we can expand our understanding of the tool to get beyond just ‘discussions’ but see it as a platform for other creative ways to explore a topic, we’ll find a much richer level of learning. We can, maybe, even have some fun with it.

How to Know Them Better Before You Employ Them

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 1, 2014 6:29 PM


Hiring mistakes can be very costly for business owners, yet businesses continue to hire the wrong people over and over again, despite the fact that there are ways to reduce the number of bad hires made in staffing a business.


Apart from making hasty decisions without due consideration of process and role requirements, the main cause of bad hires is not learning enough from the applicants during the interview process, resulting in the hiring of individuals who are wrong for the role itself and/or are a bad fit for the business culture that prevails.


This excellent Slideshare presentation, suggests employers need to get a good handle on applicants personalities and life values to be able to make better hires, and it offers a framework in which business owners can operate to achieve this end.
