Element description

Our model invites educators to share insights, strategies, problems, and solutions with each other. Collaboration allows educators to learn from each other and to share ideas and resources effectively and efficiently. Admittedly, some educators struggle with the skills necessary to successfully collaborate with peers and need opportunities to learn and practice those skills, but the benefits are well worth the effort. Strong interdependent teams are crucial to the development of a school and workplace culture that supports the shift from educator-centered to learner-centered education. These types of teams value one another’s perspectives and seek opportunities to collaborate, design, practice, implement and reflect together.
