That’s the question posed by researchers in a recent study that focused on teamwork and the use of information-communication technologies that allow students to work better together.
In the study students:
- Worked in teams based on famous video gaming consoles (Xbox, PS4, etc).
- Attempted to solve real-world problems for the video game consoles.
- Use real and relevant data in the problem-solving.
Their findings might surprise you.
After two years in the research, students performed less and less successful as measured by a 100-point grading scale.
What do you think? Can student cooperation lead to lower outcomes?
