When students perform group activities in school, it is important for them to have teamwork in order to achieve a common goal and to be able to foster camaraderie among the students. There are many benefits brought about by teamwork.
Sharing of Ideas
The group will be able to collect different ideas from members of the team. Each student has a unique outlook and therefore can present concepts and ideas in a different manner. From the pool of ideas, the entire group can discuss which works best or will be the most effective. The team can be creative by bouncing ideas off each other to find the best solutions to the problems or tasks they are facing.
Showcasing of Individual Skills
No one student can be good at everything. A student who is good in math may not do so well in English, or a student who is good in sports may not do so well in other activities. In a team, the individuals can share the skills they are good at and head a project where they feel they can do well. This is a great opportunity for the members of the team to learn from each other’s skills and talents.
Faster output is another benefit of teamwork. During a project, the group can divide the work among members of the team. This enables the individuals to concentrate on their specific duties that will contribute to the entire project. This gets the job done faster. Communication becomes an important aspect of teamwork, so the whole team can see the progress of its members.
