Giving Compass’ Take:
• Eduprotocols is a series of workflows and systems that help educators facilitate collaborative learning in the classroom and help students engage with the content.
• Can entire school districts adopt these workflows? How does collaborative learning benefit students as they prepare for the future workforce?
• Understand more about how educators feel about collaborative learning.
Traditionally, teachers have wrestled with how to get students to effectively and accurately complete work. Teachers want learning experiences that are rigorous, academic and completed in a timely manner. Students want things to be interesting, engaging, social, relevant, collaborative and maybe even enjoyable. Enter Eduprotocols.
Longtime learning pioneer Jon Corippo teamed up with a lifelong teacher and coach Marlena Hebern to create Eduprotocols – a series of prescribed workflows and systems that are content-agnostic. Regardless of grade level, subject area of specific content, these protocols are designed to allow any teacher, as well as any group of students, to not only engage with the content but produce high quality and collaborative work.
And although they introduce these protocols in now a best-selling book, with the 2nd installment coming out any day, they are really intended to be field guides. Rather than theory, these are a set of instructional workflows that will accomplish both teacher goals and student interests.
