Student Collaboration

(Part of @teachthought 30-day Reflective Teaching Blogging Challenge) more info here.

Day 25 - "The ideal collaboration between students- what would it look like?"

Collaboration between students looks like (and sounds like).....

....student partners and groupwork

....multiple students working toward the same goal

....learning in motion -- students may not be sitting still!

....give and take -- one student is not doing all of the thinking, learning, and doing

....discussions involving accountable talk between students

Ideally, student collaboration is a way for students to learn in a social way by using their strengths to contribute to the learning that is taking place. This requires a level of responsibility, trust, and persistence between students.
