Mexican-heritage children’s ways of collaboration are strengths for learning, and can also serve as a model for thinking together, for children from other backgrounds. This video shows how pairs of Mexican-heritage US children collaborated twice as much in planning and in computer programming together, compared with European American middle-class children.  The Mexican-heritage pairs often collaborated in fluid synchrony, without even having to discuss proposals for what to do next. Skillful collaboration is an important resource for learning, as people think together.  See http://learningbyobservingandpitchingin.com
