Does working as a group actually help us learn? Pros and Cons

You can’t escape having to work with others these days – everyone accords high value to “teamwork skills”. But is collaboration really better than going it alone?

I think it's hard to set up groups, and can be great or awful working in a group-so here's the good and the bad about whether groups help us learn..

This is something I feel to be important for any business. Currently at my job position was tasked with creating an infographic and got completely lost. I think making sure your information is visually pleasing is extremely important for getting your point across.

Move over MOOCs – Collaborative MOOC 2.0 is coming - University World News

Move over MOOCs – Collaborative MOOC 2.0 is coming - University World News | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

Massive open online courses – MOOCs – offered by top universities have expanded worldwide over the last three years, gaining students globally for courses designed in the United States and elsewhere and disseminated globally on platforms like Coursera, edX and the British-based FutureLearn.

Their spread has the potential to disrupt the model of bricks-and-mortar universities each with their own courses – a theme much discussed in academia.

But a new type of MOOC – dubbed MOOC 2.0 – could even disrupt the way courses are devised, altering the top-down university designed curriculum and the professor-to-student course structure that is still part of the MOOC model.

Students love to play games, and games have the potential of teaching 21st century skills. This video discusses why games work and provides a look at a number of games and skills that they teach students. Key to this is the need for the teacher to help the students transfer the knowledge they are learning in the games to other areas. The video is short (under 5 minutes) and may provide you with some new information.

Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education’s Digital Frontier

Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education’s Digital Frontier | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Instead of focusing our concerns on technology as an aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, says Jen Carey.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 1, 2014 3:10 PM

As teachers we know how easy it is for students to plagiarize today. We are asked to have students work collaboratively and use tools where students may see others thoughts. How to we deal with these issues, the need for collaboration and using tools which promote this and the issue of students plagiarizing? And when it comes to assessment how do we ask students to collaborate yet also demand that they not plagiarize?

This post explores these issues and discusses how to "transform cheating into collaboration"?  There is also a question that each of us might ask ourselves (and I suspect many of us have): If you can Google an answer is it a good question for an assessment?

In an age where children expect everything to be instant, their responses become the same without taking time to process the information first.

Becky Mowat's comment, August 26, 2013 9:48 PM
Analysis and synthesis take time...and are critical to problem solving, as we all know. How to teach these higher level thinking processes is key to helping students become successful independent learners.

that it’s important for young people to become economically independent and self-sufficient. But to do that, he argues, they shouldn’t all learn the same thing. Instead, they should be learning to be adaptable, to be innovative, to flow with change, to collaborate and other globalized skills that will apply to whatever area of work they are passionate about pursuing. An education can help expose students to different life paths and support them in finding their passions, while giving them the transferable skills to attack any problem.

Educators Innovating Learning From the Inside Out | Teacherpreneurs | eLeadership | eSkills

Educators Innovating Learning From the Inside Out | Teacherpreneurs | eLeadership | eSkills | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Teacher-researchers, design-thinkers, teacherpreneurs. . . Educators of all types have the potential to exercise their creativity, collaboration, and playfulness to improve education.

When devising strategies to make education work for the 21st century, it's natural to think first about students. How do we prepare children for a rapidly changing world? For jobs that don't exist yet? For the creative problem solving required to tackle emerging global challenges?

Tempting as it is to put children at the center of all our education decisions, we must not start there. Instead, we must begin with their teachers. Schools that enable teachers to build their own empathy skills, think creatively, and work collaboratively will be best equipped to build these same skills in students. Fortunately, any school can nurture an instructive, human-centered learning environment. Administrators can encourage teachers to identify themselves as leaders who are re-imagining learning, giving them the freedom to innovate.

Here are some examples of identities that teachers have assumed in Ashoka Changemaker Schools that empower them to restructure learning.

Preparing our Students for Web 3.0 | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Preparing our Students for Web 3.0 | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

The rate of change is moving in such a speedy pace and sooner or later we will be dealing with  totally new paradigms in education; ones that are deeply grounded in information economy and collective "wisdom  of the mobs". These new changes are mainly driven by the digital culture we and our students have come to embrace, a culture that is predicated on participation, collaboration ,  distribution of knowledge sources, and co-creation of new resources and opportunities. But are we really doing what it takes to prepare our students for this paradigmatic change or what some scholars prefer to dub " Web 3.0 Learning " ?
