ABSTRACT:
The objectives of this paper were to determine whether collaborative learning during a small group teaching have significant effect on students’ engagement and learning and to evaluate the use of technology in collaborative learning. An actual small group teaching session of students was selected. Each group was given a case study to discuss. Group round was done so that everyone in the group is involved from the start as a way of checking on learning issues. About 60% of the students said that, they actively interacted by sharing their experiences and resources during collaborative learning. More than 70% of the students agreed that, technology (padlet) was an important factor in collaborative learning. Collaborative learning fosters the members actively interact by sharing experiences and take on asymmetry roles through discussion, clarification of ideas, and evaluation of others' ideas.
