Sometimes individuals can become so fixated on their roles they lose sight of the tasks at hand. Include reflection Students must be given regular opportunities to think about their learning and their behaviour in collaborative contexts. Both formal and informal reflection is a critical component in improving collaborative work in the classroom. Much can be achieved simply through the questions we ask students as they work or at the end of a collaborative task. Responses to the questions can be communicated in a range of ways – visual, written, oral, dramatic, etc.

By being involved in real issues and activities within the school and wider community, students are given a wonderful context to develop some of the most essential skills, qualities and understandings of the lifelong learner. Authentic projects can help ‘blur’ the distinction between learning in and learning beyond the school. The upper primary and lower secondary years of schooling, in particular, are described as a time when many students become disengaged from their learning. One of the key strategies to address this problem is to build a stronger emphasis on parental and community involvement in student learning and to provide learning experiences that students see as meaningful, relevant, practical and problem based.

This requires some experience and teacher direction, as students may not know about aspects of the study that would be useful information. To involve students in the assessment process, they write what they learnt about the topic and the learning process on the back of the worksheet. Involve students in determining the criteria they use to make judgements about the quality of their own work. This is more achievable if students have had assessment criteria made explicit to them in the past, and if they have been involved in some form of either self-, peer or group assessment.
