I had some confusion about these two terms. Superficially, they seem to be the same, and a quick reading does not dispel the notion. I think I have now sorted it out. Read the following:
- A comparison of the two concepts, by Ted Panitz
- What are cooperative and collaborative learning?
- “What’s the difference between collaborative and cooperative learning?”
There could be other resources that are better than mine. Please share. And, again, in the interest of not imposing my understanding, I have refrained at this stage to supply my notes but rather my sources.
One thing still remain. Not so much the definitions, but to remember which is which.
