Collaborative Inquiry: Working toward Shared Goals


Kappa Delta Pi Record Volume 38, Number 3, ISSN 0022-8958


Working cooperatively in groups can help students connect learning with experience and build relationships at the same time. In collaborative inquiry, student questions can connect the big ideas that cut across disciplines. This paper describes how collaboration promotes social skills and a sense of partnership; discusses the appropriate learning climate; and examines problem solving and technology use in collaborative classrooms.
