Would've gone to CPS but had to move away… Reply John Oliver says: December 6, 2012 at 7:16 am These are SIMPLE processes that can be adapted ANY where. I have come to value round tables more. Going forward into the REAL jobs these kind of communication skills are essential. We are no longer training robot-like operators for big machines in the factory. These days there are temporary teams that span the globe to deliver high tech projects. Reply Paul Bupe says: December 7, 2012 at 10:19 am Wow! What a magnificent way of engaging learners. That is what we need. Every teacher should try this. Reply contown731 says: January 6, 2013 at 1:50 am I can say from personal experience that CPS is kind of overrated. Reply Doug says: January 28, 2013 at 12:24 pm Wish my classroom groups were that small to have a decent moderated discussion with. Its doable but SOO much effort. Reply Manos Papadakis says: July 6, 2013 at 7:44 am Although I really liked this video, i fear that one student may be helping a lot with the classroom material and the others in his/her group might be waiting for him/her to solve the problem. Have you noticed any similar case? Reply NaLine Ferret says: September 23, 2013 at 12:55 pm (1)Yes, indeed a wonderful school and magnificent example and way of engaging learners,…:)! I believe strongly in this path of collaborative learning but…there are still lots of cultural obstacles and so much social-scholar organization's differences over the world to overcome… to put/adapt in practice and be successful… Reply Adelgaza20 con Ingrid Macher says: October 29, 2013 at 9:44 pm this is so important. To be engaged. Reply Dinesh A says: November 24, 2013 at 3:52 am hey guys its amazing, we bagged with your thoughts and this could really help Indian classrooms so dear educated Indian teachers make use of this method in class for better results. Reply Miguel Santiago says: July 19, 2014 at 12:58 am I love this! I love just starting a tutoring program for students that encompasses collaborative learning! A lot of people have a hard time believing that this can work. They believe the standard style of learning is the only way. I am so glad this video exists to further strengthen the concept of this learning method. Reply Orlando Vick says: December 2, 2015 at 5:03 am it's so much cool to have that in the classroom and make it work….great job! Reply ЯссенГрегорович says: September 15, 2016 at 5:42 pm Just like open plan offices, it makes work more difficult for 50-25% of people who are introverts. Wasted potential. Reply Dr. Kendra Strange says: January 4, 2017 at 2:01 am Collaborative learning raises rigor and increases engagement. @drkendrastrange Reply David says: August 12, 2017 at 3:32 pm In Cuba, they also have 45 min classes and a 5-min break between periods. I think that is what works best for both the teacher and the students.The kids in middle and high school stay in the same classroom all through the day unless they have to go to the physics, chemistry, or computer labs: The students stay with their classes all day long too. They do not go to different classes and that is going to be like for the 3 years of middle school and the 3 years of high school, which makes it easier to control individual kids and the whole class. They have three teachers per class working directly with the kids, one is the "guide" teacher and the other two are collaborators but equally responsible for the class they help support. Teachers specialize in up to 3 subjects, for instance, math, chemistry, and physics, or literature, history, and geography. The teachers are the ones who move from room to room that usually are on the same floor and next door.

Reply Uta Steinel-Schrenk says: September 16, 2018 at 7:56 pm I like this method very much. I use also iPads and so the students are free in doing their work and we can see the results together, we can send the results to all and so we are sharing and collaborating and we are working successfully. I am teaching also social studies and so I like also Goal Based Learning. Both kind of teaching offer us a nice learning ambiance Reply Spring Tate says: December 4, 2018 at 12:07 am Hello,My name is Spring Tate, and I am a student at College for Creative Studies. I am doing a Film Documentary on the Linguistics on the words we use to talk to one another, and how words can have power. And how especially within a class setting, regarding how words are used in learning in a classroom setting in cultures all over the world. I would like to know is it possible to have your permission to used your video in my Film Documentary class. I am working with the Professor at Wayne State University Linguistics Dept. Professor Haiyong Liu. And he was the one, who was so kind enough to allow me to film him in my Documentary. He was a great inspiration in how this film should be done, and that's to show how we communicate to one another. I thought the story on Collaborative Learning Builds Deeper Understanding is a perfect example of different cultures working together learning a learn experience in education. I would like to used your video in my Film Documentary as soon as possible for my finale project. Please contact me as soon as you can. Thank you. Sincerely, Spring P.
