As a learner, I value individualized learning. Cooperative tasks are important for developing social skills and knowledge–but as for me, I get lost in a group, have trouble understanding, and feel not as willing to share my ideas when there is pressure. At the end of the day, despite group work, it is the individual who needs attention; it is the individual who is learning.
separating yourself from the crowd,
coming up with unique ideas,
and ultimately learning to be yourself
