Cooperative learning

Cooperative learning is a hot topic. It is more than just working together. More specifically, if we ask children to learn cooperatively, we expect them to discuss the assignments and help each other out. Children can explain information to each other, for example. Recent studies show that cooperative learning is an effective way to develop cognitive and social skills. It stimulates a child to learn actively, develop cognitive abilities, solve problems, integrate and apply knowledge, and verbalize thoughts. Educo offers a variety of materials that stimulate cooperative learning. The Together series and the games Talk together, Lace together, and Build together are exemplary of Educo’s dedication to cooperative learning.​

Product review: Talk together

Guest review by Anke

What is it?

Talk together can be played by two children simultaneously. They sit opposite to each other at a table. In between the children, there is a talking sheet. Both children have four magnets in four different colors. The children can now give each other orders, such as: “Place the red magnet on the red butterfly.” They can then both try to complete the assignment. The two magnets will only stick to the sheet when both children carry out the assignment correctly.
