This proven classroom component allows everyone to participate and be engaged. Students sitting at the Collaborative Learning Table learn by discussing their thoughts and ideas with their teacher and each other, rather than by just taking notes. Students are encouraged to challenge ideas, and to collaborate rather than compete with each other. An established method, originally funded by Edward Harkness, at top schools like Phillips Exeter Academy and The Lawrenceville School.
With their oval shape and low student-to-teacher ratio, Collaborative Learning Tables offer an interactive style learning experience that involves all students in dynamic discussions. The proven method of discussions at the table foster in-depth understanding of course material and help students grow in their ability to listen, collaborate, and articulate their views while respecting those of others.
Classroom discussions that take place at Collaborative Learning Tables challenge students to take responsibility for their own learning; they formulate topics, pose questions, and ignite a dialogue that brings lessons alive and leads to new insights. As hoped for with Edward Harkness’s gifts to Phillips Exeter Academy and The Lawrenceville School, the cooperative learning environment enhances academic rigor and substance with students and faculty alike finding their work more meaningful in the context of this collaborative experience.
