Abstract

There have been many studies conducted about group learning in the educational. It has shown to have a very positive impact on children’s learning experiences. The purpose of this study is to see if learning in the workplace makes people just as successful as in an educational environment. We have predicted it to be very beneficial to workers in any field. We want to expose a group of workers to a new program and see how well they can navigate to solve a problem with no help from co-workers. Using the same program we would like to observe how well a group of workers learn a program if they work together in groups.
