What is collaboration all about?

Collaboration or Cooperation?

These are great on their own but put them together and make something magical.

Collaboration - Common goal, vision, direction
Cooperation - doing the tasks and bringing them together

How do we prevent children getting lost in collaborative learning spaces?

Collaboration should be driven by what is bet for the children evidence, not by personal beliefs about what is best for them. 

Learning space - things for consideration
Passive space where you can sit and do nothing outside.

Language is important when setting up these spaces
- responsibly
- learning mummer to allow thinking to occur
- observation seat - 'floating river' ako students could sit and listen to learning conversations

Spaces are revisited all the time with students. Create an environment squad to reflect. Use our values to reflect on this. Squads or leadership roles aligning with school values.
