Özet

Collaborative learning leads individuals to focus on the goals related with group's interests and groups' gain or loss rather than his/her own personal interest and personal gain or loss. Even though it is quite challenging at the very beginning to achieve a success in collaboration because of people's egoism, a definite success can be obtained after a couple trials. Thus, the collaboration starts, and a move from me to us will be achieved.

This project, focused on the pre-service teacher education in mathematics education in Turkey, has three goals. The first goal is to encourage pre-service teachers to develop their own learning objects. The second goal is to contribute in improving their understanding the theory behind professionally designed educational software. A third goal is to help them practive collaborative learning model by assessing the learning objects developed during the course and collaboratively improve their products. The data presented here are the final version of the project launched four years ago.
