To foster students’ collaboration, communication and critical thinking (3Cs) competencies in the English and Higher Chinese curriculum, the school employed Group Scribbles (GS); a tools for thinking about and realizing collaborative learning activities. Lessons were designed using rapid collaborative knowledge improvement (RCKI) principles and pedagogies. Findings have shown that students improved on the collaborative and communication skills through the regular use of GS. Regular post-lesson conferences between the researcher and teacher helped further refine the lessons.
