GROUP STUDY

Group Study or Study Group are commonly utilized by many students to prepare themselves for class discussion, examinations or class presentation. You can also do it to review on your weak points and learn new ideas. I myself find study group at some point a necessity to learn effectively.


Just tonight my eldest daughter had their group study together with her chosen girl's classmates in our house.  As I see them studying I recall my yesteryears.  In my own experiences a study group gives me a motivation to study and update my readings because most of my classmates give me encouragement. It also helps me to learn new ideas as well as important points I missed on my readings. Most of the members in my study group are very open in sharing what they know. Hence these alerts me that I should update my readings so I could also share something.


On the other hand, the disadvantage of a study group is the part of compelling yourself to attend to it after the class or during your rest days. Commitment among each member is an important aspect of the study group. Hence you and your group mates have to set aside other activities to study together.

And one thing more if you and your classmates are just having fun, and forget studies during study group well that is another problem.  Parents must see to it that the children are having their group study rather than having fun, gossip and laughter while studying.  Parental Guidance always be present.



To join a study group or not is your own choice, because there are other people who learn better when they do it alone. If you think you will be learning effectively in joining or having a group, go on and enjoy the fun way of learning.

  1. I always prefer group studies :) It's good to be surrounded with friends din kasi as I review.. Pero may mga times na I'm more productive when I study alone..

  3. Gone are those days na Sis. Sa mga group studies, may mga students na magulang na, madalas nangiiwan sa ere. My son has to deal with these fellow classmates of him. Madalas in a group of 6, apat lang ang maasahan.

  6. Studyin alone or in group have their own advantages and disadvantages and I prefer both, for havin it solo so you can have a me time to focus, for group study sessions it could be better off if the subject is analytical and quantitative since you have all the minds to work together to get the easiest solution as possible!

    God Bless in your studies Kid.. more to go!

  7. If I may quote "Commitment among each member is an important aspect of the study group. Hence you and your group mates have to set aside other activities to study together."

    I've had study groups too back when I was still studying. But when I got into college, I only joined SG's that only had 2-3 people in it, particularly those who were in it to study. I was able to learn effectively in this manner when all of my study buddy's were committed and disciplined. :)

  8. Group study is different from study group. There's a big difference. I know what you're talking about here is group study. Several students form a group and do some research, study and discuss about themselves what they've come into contact or found out based on their subject or project undertaken. This group study is suited for brainstorming.

  9. This is what I have missed as a student. I was such a loner way back then (I still am, though). The only time I joined a group study was when we had to do our group thesis in college and it felt awkward for me.
    The kids in the photos look like they are really having fun :)

  10. Gil Camporazo: Actually sir, this is a study group, not a group study. A study group is the bunch of friends doing their schoolwork and whatnot together. A group study is a study done on a group, whether literal, numerical, or data-based.

    On topic: I'm a lone wolf kind of student. I WORK fine in groups, but when studying for an exam back then? No way haha.

  11. Perhaps group study is synonymous to the idea of having play dates? While working on my own is what I love, I likewise recognize the benefits of being in a group. It teaches you teamwork & discipline. :)

  12. I remember when I was still in school I prefer to be alone in library or wherever I feel like studying. I don't have anything against my classmates or my friends but its easier for me to focus if I'm alone. I only do group study if its required for us to be able to finish the project and submit it on time.

  13. Group study do make a pool of ideas for the students. It is a huge playground for the young minds too, to realize the importance of cooperation and sharing.

  16. Mas magandan siguro kung mag aaral muna mag isa tapos next day group study para mag share ng mga kuro kuro.

  17. I find this useful at times pero minsan it can also be distracting. Children who do group studies need to have focus lang for it to work.

  18. I never had a chance to attend Group Study during my younger years since I belong to a class of nerds lol. But I did enjoy it during college days which is more of a group discussion as we could share about our own ideas and interpretation.

  21. Having group studies are very helpful indeed. It's like brainstorming... he knows what the others don't know and vice-versa. They will able to come up with better solutions. Each member should cooperate and share whatever views or opinions he/she has in order to have smooth flow of interaction.

  22. Well, there are different approaches to learning. I think that being alone is better than having a study group, based on my experience.. I don't know, maybe it's because of the people I've been with before, laro laro lang habang review..
