Welcome to EDGE904 Activity - Group 4

For our activity, we shall be exploring Collaboration through collaborative learning. We shall be examining various aspects including what it looks like, how it works, and what is needed for successful collaboration.

 

In "What is Collaborative Learning?",  Barbara Leigh-Smith, B., &  MacGregor, J.T. (1992) describes Collaborative learning as,  "an umbrella term for a variety of educational approaches involving joint intellectual effort by students, or students and teachers together. Usually, students are working in groups of two or more, mutually searching for understanding, solutions, or meanings, or creating a product. Collaborative learning activities vary widely, but most center on studentsí exploration or application of the course material, not simply the teacherís presentation or explication of it".

 

Wikipedia (2012) describes Collaboration as, Collaboration is working together to achieve a goal. It is a process where two or more people or organizations work together to realize shared goals. Most collaboration requires leadership, although the form of leadership can be social within a decentralized and egalitarian group.
