Collaboration a fun word for teachers. It is a Fancy Nancy way of saying working together.
What is the ideal collaboration between students-what would it look like?
It would look like students sitting together huddled over a project together.
It would look like a student chatting/tweeting/blogging with another student from another school/city/country.
It would look like a student reaching out to an expert advice.
It would look like sharing.
It would look like equal work load.
It would look fair and respectful.
It would look interesting-sparks are flying.
Whispering, talking, clicking of key board, giggling and exclamations!
Togetherness, despite the distance between the students.
Respect for each other, despite the differences in beliefs, cultures and communities.
Excitement for new ideas, ah-ha moments and discoveries.
Hands on with manipulatives, materials and technology.
What does your collaboration dream look like?
