Cooperative learning has been found to be effective in many US studies, so how would it perform in England? The results of a randomised controlled trial of a maths programme for 8-10 year olds found that, although mostly well-received in schools, the one-year intervention had no observable impact on pupils' maths achievement. The programme was based on co-operative learning techniques and the use of interactive whiteboard resources with embedded multimedia. The researchers conclude that teaching methods that are effective in one culture (the US) cannot simply be transferred to another (the UK).
