A Smarter Way to Study
When students help teach each other, incredible gains are made for all. In fact, research shows that peer-to-peer learning helps create a more productive and effective learning environment for both the student-teacher and student-student Here’s how it works.
1. First things first, peer-to-peer learning is not a new concept Aristotle was one of the first known practitioners of peer teaching through his use of student leaders to discuss and share his ideas with other students. Peer tutoring in the United States has long been used in the college setting, dating back to 1640, when the first paid student tutor was hired by Harvard University. (Dwyer, 1989)
2. How Exactly does peer-to-peer teaching work? It’s easy. A student or peer simply takes it upon themselves to help share their knowledge about a topic or idea with their classmates, other students, even brother or sister. Students at all grade levels participating in tutorial programs, improved their reading performance more than the expected gain for the typical student at that grade level. (AmeriCorps, 2001)
3. What does the student-teacher get out of it? As Frank Oppenheimer famously said, “The best way to learn is to teach. And student-teachers are no exception. That’s because they spend more time researching and discussing their subject so that they can confidently share their insights with others. Students at all grade levels participating in tutorial programs, improved their reading performance more than the expected gain for the typical student at that grade level. (AmeriCorps, 2001)
4. What does the student-learner get out of it? Students feel more comfortable and open when learning from their peers. They’re more likely to discuss concepts and interact more with the lesson at hand. Plus, they retain the knowledge they gained more easily. Peer learning] effects on students were positive in the areas of learning, attitude toward subject matter, and self-concept. (Cohen and Kulik, 1981)
