If you are near enough, why not think about attending one of our free Saturday workshops! On 7th February we are working with Bradford on Avon Barnstormers to present teaching activities that showcase the history of the Monastic Tithe Barn. We develop, share and disseminate free talk for learning activities in all subject areas and for all ages. We believe that teachers are more creative and develop more engaging and exciting resources when they plan and work collaboratively inside and outside the classroom. We explain in greater detail further down the page why Collaborative Learning is so important for teaching and learning and also provide a bibliography for those of you who would like to see more evidence. Excellent for all learners and vital for learners new to English! Collaborative Learning creates an EAL friendly classroom.
It works well in CLIL classrooms too! Collaborative Learning is practitioner led, has evolved over the last thirty five years and is still evolving. We support a teacher network that shares resources that scaffold talk. First to develop resources that empower learners by encouraging them to work with every other learner, including new arrivals to English, in the class in a playful, but purposeful, way. We want to nurture emotional and social development and make learners confident in sharing what they know.
Second to make complex ideas accessible by providing ways in which they can be presented in concrete, visual and tactile ways. Learners learning English while they are learning everything else thrive on challenging activities that are quickly comprehensible. Third to encourage exploratory talk in the classroom. There is increasing evidence that talk and thinking work together to develop new meanings. There is also now neurological evidence that talk fuels brain development. Unfortunately there is also evidence that talk has been neglected in our classrooms and this has widened the gap in attainment. Our project grew out of the « teachers as researchers » initiative in the 1970s and was initially funded by the Inner London Education Authority.
