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.
