Collaborative learning is a widely used practical teaching method because its teaching potential in daily teaching has not been fully developed. Now more and more researchers began to pay attention to collaborative learning. Culture has a great influence on teaching and learning, among which the cultural dimensions of power distance, individualism, cooperation, competition, and openness have the greatest influence on education. Different dimensions between Eastern and Western cultures have different remarkable influences on teaching and learning. Hence, the cross-cultural differences in collaborative learning are also obvious. Compared to competitive learning and personalized learning, students in collaborative learning can participate in group activities and share their knowledge and ideas, most of which are student-centered. Teachers often act the same role, facilitators, and guides, although their cultural backgrounds are different. Thus, the classroom for collaborative learning is primarily student-led, but teachers also have a critical position that cannot be ignored. Teachers and students from different cultural backgrounds are bound to influence the style and effectiveness of collaborative learning. The studies indicated that the differences between teachers’ and the students’ roles are affected by a different culture in collaborative teaching. Indeed, other factors influence cross-cultural collaborative learning, such as self-regulation and ethnic, cultural backgrounds. Indeed, existing research is insufficient because it does not manipulate different factors to find their influence on the outcome, so future research could stand on a specific position to investigate.
