Collaborative Learning

square collaborativeA flexible learning environment supports collaborative learning. Classes are better able to work together on problem solving and can share learning experiences. Children work in groups and in teams, learning from and with each other, supporting and receiving support from each other and thus learning the value of interdependence.

Teaching in a traditional classroom setting can be an isolating practice. In a flexible learning environment where collaborative learning is the norm teachers are given opportunities daily to observe and engage in professional dialogue regarding the teaching practice of colleagues, hopefully leading to improved teaching practice.
