Program Description

In our changing world students should not only be taught individualistic and competitive interaction but also cooperative interaction. Co-operative learning broadens students’ range of experiences and prepares them for life at school, in society and future life in the workplace. It provides a variety of ways to communicate, higher level thinking and social skills. Importantly co-operative interaction gives all students the opportunity to be included in a positive learning environment.

Cooperative learning can be described as means of providing opportunities for pupils to work together as a team in accomplishing a set of given objectives. It is collaborative in nature and focuses on individual accountability to team success. A major benefit of cooperative learning includes the nurturance and development of social interaction skills. Mathematics is a great learning area to develop cooperative learning skills because many of the mathematics ideas are well developed and can be completed in one lesson.
