How often are students engaged in collaborative work in the classroom?

The recent EUN Briefing Papers looks into the questions around technology-enhanced collaborative learning, with a special focus on the Creative Classrooms Lab project.  

Among education researchers and practitioners, there is a growing consensus towards the positive role of collaborative work in the classroom, which is seen as a way to engage students in the learning process and prepare them for the challenges of the labour market and adult life. But to what extent are students in Europe engaged in group work? How is the use of computers linked to it? And what are the opinions of education stakeholders towards the role of ICT in students’ collaboration? Results from the Survey of School: ICT in Education can help us answering some of these questions.

About EUN Briefing Papers

Briefing Papers aim to present the findings of the Survey of Schools: ICT in Education on a specific topic, relating them to the results of European Schoolnet’s projects. Survey of Schools: ICT in Education provides detailed, up-to-date and reliable benchmarking on ICT in school education across Europe, painting a picture of the use of technology for learning in schools: from the provision of infrastructure, to teachers’ and students’ use of technology, and their confidence and attitudes towards ICT.

The Survey and all the Briefing Papers are available here:
