ASPIRE Learner Skill Description
Collaborative learning has been shown to not only develop higher-level thinking skills but boost your confidence and self-esteem too. However, to work effectively in pairs or small groups, you need to plan carefully and agree some rules.
Occasionally, summarise what has been said to let your peers know that their contributions have been heard
If someone says something you don't understand, ask them politely to explain it again
If you don't think you have been understood, ask someone else to summarise your contributions
When noting points that group members have made, use different colours for each person to make sure that everyone contributes
