Question and answer
Why is cooperative learning an essential and effective teaching strategy? Explain.
WHY - because it is so superior to other types of teaching ! Unlike individual learning, which can be competitive in nature, students learning cooperatively capitalize on one another’s resources and skills (asking one another for information, [ evaluating one another’s ideas, monitoring one another’s work, etc.). Furthermore, the teacher's role changes from giving information to facilitating students' learning. Everyone succeeds when the group succeeds. Ross and Smyth (1995) describe successful cooperative learning tasks as intellectually demanding, creative, open-ended, and involve higher
order thinking tasks. Five Basic Elements of Cooperative Learning 1. Positive Interdependence 2. Face-To-Face Interaction 3. Individual Accountability 4. Social Skills 5. Group Processing Students who learn in this way will have much better success than by other teaching methods, have more confidence, gradually become more 'accelerated learners', and are well prepared for when they leave school, and enter the true learning environment - the real world. It's also more fun (always a bonus) TEAM - Together Everybody Achieves More. ]
