    Re: Module 1 Reflecting: Collaborative Classrooms

      Hi All,

      I too have enjoyed the first module. It seemed to pull together all we have been doing in the last few years ie cooperative learning, the Contemporary learning framework and a focus on the learner and the learning. I try to include collaboration in my classroom and agree with Stephanie that in Year 4 it has been more successful with pairs and smaller groups. I believe once the students master these groupings they will be successful in larger groups.

      Since changing the classroom environment to a more 21st Century learning space, I've found the students to be much more open to collaboration. I'm more willing to trust them to make choices in their learning  and to provide for inquiry and cooperation. I am looking forward to learning not only how to include more collaboration but also to make the classroom ICT rich and connected to the world.
