How I Use It
I believe that this is an excellent project for teaching students how to follow directions and get along with each other. Also great for helping students who aren't always as outspoken to take on a leadership role and be in charge of a task. Wonderful program for students to communicate with other students from other states or countries if you choose to use it that way. I used this program in conjunction with their art class and it was a great way to integrate computers, art, writing and geography all into one lesson!
My Take
This program is a great way for students to communicate and collaborate with other students from across and country, or even across the world! Students not only learn how to collaborate with others, but also how to take on a role, and be in charge of a specific part of an assignment. They learn that following directions, and group work with cooperation and collaboration is key to a successful group project.
