The importance of collaboration…

I used this clip during form time as part of a lesson on being open to new ideas. The students really enjoyed seeing the animation clip and were easily able to apply the messages of working with others and taking time to let their ideas to develop to their school work.

From a teacher’s perspective it does make me wonder if the busy school days and terms are a good ways to organize learning. Are students connected merely by being a physical space learning together? Do we have both physical and learning spaces where serendipitous meetings of students with half and idea are able to combine to gain a new understanding? How do we make sure our students group work is effective?
