20 Collaborative Learning Tips And Strategies For Teachers


Collaborative learning teams are said to attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer times than students working individually.  Why is this so?

Groups tend to learn through “discussion, clarification of ideas, and evaluation of other’s ideas.” Perhaps information that is discussed is retained in long-term memory. Research suggests that students who worked collaboratively on math computational problems earned significantly higher scores than those who worked alone.

Title: Educating for the social, the emotional and the sustainable ; Diverse perspectives from over 60 contributors addressing global and national challenges

Description: 

NISSAM global briefs examines ways in which policymakers, researchers and practitioners can help address current global and national issues and thus contribute to realizing SDG Target 4.7. Many of the contributors work in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and in conflict or post-conflict situations. These briefs explore the potential for embedding SDG 4.7 themes, as well as social and emotional learning (SEL), into textbooks and education materials. 

The vital themes of SDG Target 4.7, as well as the social and emotional learning (SEL) they entail, constitute a potent blueprint for transforming education to address many contemporary challenges. While the timeframe for progress is tight, significant steps to embed Target 4.7 themes and integrate SEL into policy, programs, materials and practice are feasible and clearly demonstrated in the briefs in this volume.
