What do you think of cooperative learning?

Gary Stager, The Daily Papert, Sept 20, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I was drawn to this item by the Papert quote: "I think it’s very bad when students are forced to work in groups. But, when the collaboration comes around naturally, some of the best things happen." Which is essentially my feeling about the subject. But also interesting is the study Stager links to the post, which asserts that "the social component of PBL (problem based learning) is not a critical feature of its effectiveness."
