Oh boy, oh boy!  When I was a student, we worked like blazes becoz we had to or we'd've failed, but we had FUN too - lots and lots of it!  Now these poor devils are being analysed to death - and not even good jobs at the end of it -  Guys, u woz robbed...  the world has just been computerised to death!   Kids, take my advice, Have Fun  - don't look back on your student days and sigh for lost opportunities.

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.

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.
