Curiosity and Powerful Learning

We are always promoting to students and our wider school community that we are all learners, including teachers and staff at our school. This term our staff learning focus is around learning strategies for implementing cooperative learning groups. The research shows that curiosity develops when students learn from each other in a structured manner. We believe that when cooperative learning is present in a class, a spirit of collaboration and mutual responsibility develops. Working in cooperative groups is a powerful way to raise learning achievement. It helps to develop social and academic skills by encouraging active participation in learning. The skills used when working in cooperative groups include:

  • Negotiating, communicating, organising, developing ways of solving problems, collecting and interpreting evidence, hypothesising – testing – and re-evaluating, defining issues and problems.
