Working in a group might be the best way to help kids meet individual goals, study says

Working in a group might be the best way to help kids meet individual goals, study says | Collaboration in the 21st Century classroom | Scoop.it
In a study of almost 900 high school students at four different schools, the researchers found that the more high-quality collaborative learning experiences students had at school, the more that the students said they felt their personal learning needs were met and that they were adequately challenged and supported when they needed help.

Listening to each other is the cornerstone to teaching.
Marie Sunshine Rose's comment, October 3, 2:54 AM
Listening is a trait of a good leader. Being a teacher you lead the class and students follow you. As such holding the right values is important. Being a good listener brings into light the queries, the weakness, the difficulties of students. This reduces autocratic style and students develop a more closer relationship which creates a better environment for sharing of information, ideas, skills, memories and innovation. Sharing plays an important role in building a positive classroom community. Just as important, sharing offers ample opportunities to practice and reinforce the speaking, listening, and thinking skills that are so crucial to school success.

Pretty nice tools to take into account in our classes! They will help us with the management of the class; besides, it will promote collaborative learning through the development of critical thinking and will enhance participation. One of the best things of technology is that it will help learners to come up with some learning strategies; on the other hand, the use of ICT's in the class create awareness of the positive effects of technology once it is used wisely.
