LC Module: Project Planning - Introductory Meetings

“Research suggests that providing students with opportunities to work together may prompt increases in students’ critical thinking, motivation, and metacognition. (Pearson, Inc. 2011)
“Collaboration increases understanding and improves quality of output. In the classroom, collaboration dramatically increases opportunities for the body and brain partnership to play an active rather than passive role in learning, thus spurring physiological change in the brain” (Kovalik, n.d., n.p.) (Cercone, Kathleen 2006)
“To learn problem solving is to learn how to learn. The most convenient approach with regard to reaching this aim in teaching and learning environments is the problem-based learning taken part in active learning. (Orhan Akınoğlu and Ruhan Özkardeş Tandoğan 2007)
