Do you use 'collaborative problem solving approaches in your classroom?
Nesta is working with UCL Knowledge Lab in a project to identify examples of 'collaborative problem solving' in UK classrooms.
By collaborative problem-solving the project team mean
"the process through which a small-medium number of participants (between two and ten), who share an agreed problem and goal, use their social and cognitive knowledge and skills to achieve a solution."
As many mathematics teachers have some highly established approaches, it would be great if you would consider completing a short survey of 10 questions - and be in with a chance to win £50!
Through this survey, we hope to find out about how educators use collaborative problem solving in their practice to support, and to explore the broad nature of collaborative problem solving.
Please forward this invitation to colleagues from other subject areas in your school - who you know also use collaborative problem-solving approaches in their classrooms.
