Replacing the Classroom: As-Factory with Collaborative Learning

Posted on March 5, 2013

Aaron Harris takes a deeper look at how technology can help us expand on some of our most time-tested methods of educating today’s youth.

Collaborative learning isn’t just some new fad. It’s a method that has been in place for generations. As Aaron points out, students at Jewish Day Schools have traditionally studied the Talmud through both lecture and group learning, called chevruta study.

As school populations all across America continue to grow, improved technology is providing educators with more options. It isn’t a move to towards the future, as much as a re-discovery of the past as technology is allowing schools to apply the same tactics of small group learning to larger groups more easily.
