These studies also cover learners from elementary to college levels. There are many factors that lead students to experience these feelings of group hate some of the more crucial elements include: Think-pair-share Originally developed by Frank T.
Knowledge is obtained from the student rather than solely from the teacher. For instance, it was found that children who were taught using this strategy showed higher levels of accuracy in mathematical computations in comparison with those who were not. There are many ways for a concern about equity to warp the function of a group.
Conflict-management skills Group processing Group processing occurs when group members a reflect on which member actions were helpful and b make decision about which actions to continue or change. Conditions for Constructive Individualistic Efforts Cooperation is too costly, difficult or cumbersome because of the unavailability of skilled potential cooperators or the unavailability of the resources need for cooperation to take place.
Once back in their home group, each student is accountable for teaching his or her assigned topic. Once a topic has been identified, students leave the home group and group with the other students with their assigned topic.
The Williams[ edit ] Students collaborate to answer a big question that is the learning objective. In order for student achievement to improve considerably, two characteristics must be present: Hundreds of techniques have been created into structures to use in any content area.
This approach enables students to use important metacognitive techniques such as clarifying, questioning, predicting, and summarizing. This can be a difficult task. Requires adequate facilities and infrastructure. However, it is not uncommon to hear students expressing negative opinions regarding cooperative learning.
It is the written version of Robin Table. This is only amplified when the students are put into groups and asked to complete a project with little instructions on how to do so. This method is one of the learning strategies designed by Robert Slavin for the purpose of review and mastery in the learning.
The students get excited about learning. However, "Assessment can be the Achilles heel of cooperative learning"  Students often will assess their group positively in hopes that they will in return be assessed the same way.
One of the main flaws that we see with previous research is that the research is almost always done from the perspective of the instructor.
But studies also show that competition and individualistic efforts can be constructive and should be encouraged when they are appropriately structured. In order for this to occur each member must have a task that they are responsible for which cannot be completed by any other group member.
The way a teacher chooses to structure a project can influence how a student perceives the project overall.A student who has a high self-efficacy allows himself to believe that he can be successfully academically.(Bozo & Flint, ) He believes that a challenging problem is a task that can be mastered This student is more committed to work in the classroom.

A Senior Thesis submitted in partial fulfillment. In order to investigate the students’ attitudes and self-efficacy toward the m-learning, the researcher adopted two instruments: an m-learning attitude survey and an m-learning self-efficacy survey.
among self-efficacy, self-concept and academic performance as measured by factors include self-concept, self-efficacy, and other student perceptions (Carter, ). Self-efficacy and self-concept, with specific focus on academics are /I a high sense of efficacy for self-regulated learning and academic mastery" (Bandura et al.).
