Abstract

How can our social brain aid our academic learning? Which role do our emotions play in learning? Can collaborative learning lead to improved ac-ademic achievement and, arguably more importantly, help knowledge trans-fer into the real world? This paper researches neuroscience, cognitive psy-chology, social interdependence and social learning examining the role of collaboration in learning. It researches empirical data, including meta-analyses and studies, into collaborative interactive learning, in order to support the argument that collaboration leads to increased academic achievement compared to students who learn via traditional methods. Fi-nally, it identifies six factors crucial to effective collaborative learning: ac-countability, versatility, ambience, comprehensibility, amalgamation and recapitulation (AVACAR).
