While students require some quiet time to internalize new knowledge they also benefit from “socializing” intelligence. Working together in cooperative groups on standards based tasks. This does not mean simple putting students into groups to do the same work; it means utilizing structures where each member contributes and displays their own knowledge thereby gaining a deeper knowledge themselves and increasing the knowledge of the group overall.
Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey assert that technology can support these structures. For example, students can Google Docs to write and receive feedback from peers. How have you used technology in a collaborative manner?
