Let’s work together: co-operative learning in the primary classroom


Abstract: We see lots of trends in education and ELT, but one that is definitely here to stay is co-operative learning. What is it, why does it make sense and how can we integrate it into the primary classroom? From speaking to listening, brainstorming to singing songs, using apps in class to giving a co-operative flavour to common classroom activities, this webinar will provide a wealth of practical ideas and tips on how to get your learners working together.
