Our presentation intends to bring about new reflections from the analisis of experiences on a specific way of learning, the cooperative one, considered more as a condition rather than a strategy, in order to create in classrooms and institutions the ideal academic environment and social climate in order to efficiently meet the educational objectives proposed in the different stages of the educational objectives proposed in the different stages of the educational law.
We place ourselves in that group who believes that cooperating is sharing vital significative experiences of any character and nature; that cooperating jeans working side by side with others in order to achieve shared goals and collective and individual products that may yield profit both for oneself and for all the group members, (Johnson & Johnson, 2004). Learning to cooperate involves that pupils must exercise the experience they need so as to achieve a healthy social, psychological and cognitive development (Johnson, Johnson & Holubec, 1999).
