Online Collaboration

I recently finished 21st Century Skills: Rethinking How Student Learn edited by James Bellana and Ron Brandt. One of the chapters included an excellent presentation of how traditional cooperative learning tasks can be accomplished in an online environment by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey. For example you could use google docs for collaborative writing tasks. They also provide a rubric for Internet Reciprocal Teaching where each student takes on a different role. Keeping students engaged is critical for success and it’s important to think about how successful classroom practices that keep students engaged can be used in an online environment.
