Transcript of Cooperative Learning

WHAT IS COOPERATIVE LEARNING?

• An evidence-based learning strategy that develops
social skills and improves academic performance.
• Grew out of developments in social psychology.
• Particularly important in education from the 1980s
to the present day.
• Often used in inclusive, heterogeneous and multi-racial
classrooms.
Not always suitable for students with learning difficulties (Woolfolk,
et al
, 2010).
FIVE KEY ELEMENTS OF COOPERATIVE GROUPS
(Putnam
et al.
, 1996)

(1) Positive goal interdependence
(2) Individual accountability
(3) Face-to-face promotive interaction
(4) Appropriate use of social skills
(5) Group processing


HOW IS A COOPERATIVE LEARNING CLASSROOM DIFFERENT
FROM A TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM?

• Students work together to accomplish
shared goals.
• Teacher is facilitator, coach, guide.

JIGSAW GROUPS

Create groups that mix gender, ethnicity, race and ability.
Helps promote self-esteem and personal development and diversity.

JIGSAW NEXT STEPS

Give each student one segment of the lesson and time to read it through.

Have students with the same segment joint together to form new groups.

Give students time to work together to discuss and learn about their segment using tools such as textbooks, computers, or other tools in the class.

Bring the students back to their original groups and have them teach each other about their segment.

The teachers role is to encourage questions, monitor and moderate.

Listening
Engagement
Empathy
Individual responsibility
Work in teams
Consolidates the learning because they have to explain it

DEVELOPS STUDENT ABILITIES
A RECENT (2013) STUDY SUPPORTING COOPERATIVE LEARNING (Zakarai
et al
., 2013)
2

Secondary mathematics students score better, increase understanding and improve self-esteem with cooperative learning.
Quasi-experiment with 61 Indonesian students.
Treatment group had significantly higher mean scores after cooperative learning activities for integrals, area and volume.
Control group mean score:
47.47
Treatment group mean score
: 55.19
