All About Cooperative Learning Tools

Why Cooperative Learning Tools?

The need for connection is very important for all children, but especially for teenagers. (Just look at their fascination with social media) Even the ‘loners’ need to connect and cooperative learning tools are a great way of building the people and teamwork skills students will require later in life. (if you look at the Key Selection Criteria for almost any job these days, you will find Key Selection Criteria relating to the ability to work in a team environment and the ability to communicate)

In its positive form, connection is achieved through:

√      Rapport with the teacher

√      Group activities

√      Team activities and games

√      Friendships and friendship groups

√      Sport and interest groups

√      Bullying groups- mainly for boys
