Collaboration is a place to learn with others.
Authentic collaboration means students:
- work together on a common task, project or goal
- have equal contribution and accountability
- are dependent on the whole group.
Collaboration includes the sharing and refinement of ideas, problem solving, designing, prototyping, testing, evaluating, recording and presenting.
Teachers act as learning guides, prompting with questions and guiding students to develop their own solutions and answers.
