  5. 5. Teaching vs learning John Amos Comenius, a 16th Century scholar; summarised the approach that teaching should follow, “The main object is to find a method by which teachers teach less but learners learn more”, proving that current problems have noble pedigrees.
  6. 6. Collaborative learning Collaborative learning in the ECDE level means children working together to accomplish a task, or to achieve a certain goal. We humans, like many other animals, are social beings. We are more successful if we use our intelligence to work with others to achieve more. To be able to work collaboratively is a skill we all need.

In a teaching situation you are likely to face challenges such as:  How to help the pupils to acquire more knowledge?  How to make learning more interesting for the pupils?  How to motivate the pupils?  How to challenge the pupils so that they can perform better?

  • Just like our earlier discussions on active learning, small group work, the idea is to involve students more in their own learning process.
    Comenius - Known today as the "Father of Modern Education," pioneered modern educational methods.
    Comenius was asked to be the first President of Harvard College -- and declined.
    Comenius was the first to use pictures in a textbook.
    Comenius was the first to promote continuing education -- and the first to advocate equal education for all, including women and the poor. Just like our earlier discussions on active learning, small group work, the idea is to involve students more in their own learning process.
  • Collaborative learning represents a significant shift away from the typical teacher-centred or lecture-centred milieu in higher education class rooms.
    In collaborative classrooms, the lecturing/listening/note-taking does not disappear but it lives alongside other processes that are based on students’ discussion and active work with the course material.
    Lecturers who use collaborative learning approaches tend to think of themselves less as experts transmitters of knowledge and more as coaches or midwives of a more emergent learning process.
    The process is based on establishing a community of learners.
  • Since we use collaborative learning to help students learn more effectively it is important to consider teaching strategies that go beyond a mere mastery of content and ideas. Collaborative learning promotes and educational agenda that encompasses several intertwined rationales
    Involvement – by its very nature collaborative learning is both socially and intellectually involving. Research has shown that it makes a significant difference in student performance and subsequently student retention.
    Cooperation and teamwork – In collaborative activities students inevitably encounter difference and have to work to recognise and deal with it. This helps build a community of learners.
    Community – Habits of participation and responsibility to a subject/classroom community can help in the broader communities. Collaborative learning encourages students to develop an active voice in shaping their ideas and values and also developing a sensitive ear to the views and opinions of thers.
    In the hands of an expert rope maker loose strands can be skilfully woven together to form a rope with greater strength and durability. The same can be said of a committed and creative lecturer.
    Don’t get me wrong – there will be cynics – one colleague in another institution- was undertaking collaborative learning in the form of group work when his Dean called and said, “I see you’re doing group work, I’ll call back when you’re teaching!”
  • Active constructive process – to learn new information, ideas or skills students have to work actively with them in purposeful ways. In collaborative learning situations students are creating something new by integrating the new material with something they already know or use it to reorganise what they thought they knew.
    Rich contexts – the idea of collaborative learning activities is to immerse students in challenging tasks or questions. Rather than beginning with facts and ideas and then moving to applications CL activities frequently begin with problems This changes the role of the student from distant observer to practitioner. Rich context challenge students to practice and develop higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills.
    Diversity – Our students bring multiple perspectives to the classroom – diverse backgrounds, learning styles, experiences and aspirations. Ashby's Law of requisite variety.
    Inherent sociability- collaborative learning produces intellectual synergy of many minds coming to bear on a problem and the social stimulation of mutual engagement of mutual engagement in a common endeavour (Voltaire – there is no problem a meeting of minds cannot resolve)
  • Cooperative efforts result in participants striving for mutual benefit so that all group members:
    gain from each other's efforts. (Your success benefits me and my success benefits you.)
    recognize that all group members share a common fate. (We all sink or swim together here.)
    know that one's performance is mutually caused by oneself and one's team members. (We can not do it without you.)
    feel proud and jointly celebrate when a group member is recognized for achievement. (We all congratulate you on your accomplishment!).
