Thought-provoking Discussion: Cooperation vs. Competition

Recently, I received a pleasant surprise in my mail box in the form of a very informative and thought-provoking comment from Anne Hodgson in response to my blog, What Works: Cooperation vs. Competition. I had so much I wanted to respond to and thought the Voice Thread format would certainly enliven the conversation. I would love to hear about your personal experiences with using cooperative learning. Do you think competition can be healthy? Do you think society puts too much pressure on students to achieve?
