Title
Social relations in the classroom and their power for learning
Author
Abstract
To what extent do learners inside and between teams share knowledge? The main contribution of this work is to analyze the classroom as a place where small working teams work and learn together and co-construct knowledge. We propose that the transfer of knowledge between students occurs not only through the work they are doing in their small teams but also through the activities all teams actively share in the larger physical and virtual classroom. These inter-team relations should reinforce the socio-cognitive processes taking place inside each working team. So, the social learning space will reinforce each teams socio-cognitive factors and create a knowledge-sharing environment that will improve learning.
