Welcome

As educators our new challenge is to prepare our students to live and work in the new digital communication age. We are no longer limited to collaborative projects within the four walls of our classroom -- we can now collaborate with schools and experts around the globe. There is no better way to teach our students the basics of digital communication than by joining or creating a collaborative project with our students.

This tutorial will guide you as you select collaborative learning activities, which you can join and will provide tips for designing and hosting your own. The first section of this tutorial "Prepare the Way" focuses on helping you finding the right kind of project to join. The last three sections will take you throught the steps of creating and hosting your own collaborative project.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on computers in order to view all of the resources in this tutorial.
