This year, the students of 1st and 2nd of ESO are starting to learn to work cooperatively. They decided not to apply this to 3rd and 4th of ESO because it would be difficult for the students to start from zero. It’s better that they finish with the old system because they have to graduate in 1 or 2 years.
Our society is changing, so it requires cooperative work. Cooperative work consists of learning how to work in a group and not only by yourself, everyone has their own abilities, so the objective is put together all the knowledge and skills and finally do activities. With this method students are the centre of learning, the teachers give them some directions and students have to learn by themselves. Cohesion activities are key to get this goals, so all the participants get in charge of making the group work well and feeling the importance of the group.
This type of work will be required in business, so it is important to start from now.
