I would like to introduce groupwork into a prison IT workshop. The workshop teaches CLAiT (e.g. word processing, spreadsheets etc.). Currently the workshop uses workbooks and exercises - the students work on their own depending on their level or where they are in a topic. There is usually a wirde range of students all at different levels and stages. Introducing groupwork faces some challenges: Students tend to focus on working through their CLAiT assessments; they prefer to work individually and they tend to resist group based activities. Groupwork does seem more popular in the ESOL and Literacy classes especially when games are used: Scrabble, hangman and countdown being quite popular. I am interested if anyone out there uses games to facilitate learning in an IT workshop for adults? Any other ways in which you use groupwork within this kind of environment? Looking forward to hearing what anyone is doing out there.
