"Go to the Collaboration space and make a plan together....."
"Share the work on this interactive tool....."
Technology can be a great tool for collaboration and yet many teachers do not understand why it continues to fail in their classroom. Collaboration is not something that automatically happens when you add technology tools. It is something that needs to be facilitated and taught by the teacher.
For me, the way I can help my students collaborate using technology is by persisting with it, supporting them and structuring its use in a way that is going to ensure their success.
