Here is a good example today from Grade 2, who were using Google Docs. Students were working in groups of twos on collaborative writing and there were three steps involved:
- Create a Google Doc with a name and share it with your partner
- Spend 15 minutes planning your story or poem
- One of the pair should move to a different space, yet you should write together
This was a great introduction for the students who had to learn to collaborate online using technology, and such an activity could be a good starting point for eventually being able to collaborate on a document with students in other schools and other countries.
