Challenges that work on the Social Organisation of the Classroom Competency:

Cooperative Learning

The teacher implements different kinds of organisation in individual and group activities, for suitable classroom management and to favour development of different competency-based learning.

Social organisation of the classroom is the way students are grouped together and the classroom dynamic is established according to the activities carried out and the attitudes we want to encourage.
