ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the significance of structured collaborative learning in education. Structured collaborative learning provide students and teachers with new and peaceful relationships with each other and with knowledge. Various forms of collaborative learning include: group projects, learning teams, and group investigations, and to place students in new relationships with each other, and with a group. Collaborative learning may simply entail having study groups work' on teacher-presented material. Research on cognitive effects of collaborative learning yields positive results for all kinds of students in all areas of study where the technique requires the contribution of all members and where there is a clear reason for helping others. Collaborative teaching offers students models of adult cooperation. The article stresses the need to develop strategies for changes in process and curriculum content to reflect greater social awareness and to educate toward peace. Curriculum should address affect and behavior along with cognition, concerning itself with intra-personal, interpersonal, and inter-group circles of influence, as well as considering right and left brain capabilities.
