Ed Tech Next report: Collaboration in K-12 Schools: Anywhere, Anytime, Any Way - September, 2006

Description     2006 ETN Report: Collaboration in K-12  This CoSN Emerging Technologies Report explores implications, technologies, costs and implementations of digital tools that make collaboration possible for groups of teachers, administrators and students. Instant messaging, blogs, wikis and portals are presented as tools that simplify collaboration among students, experts, school personnel and the community. Students are integrating collaborative tools into their own lives, and schools finally have the infrastructure in place to allow them to take advantage of those skills in the classroom. The report discusses the opportunity and challenges each presents, the impact each might have on policies and procedures, and identifies the tools necessary to implement them district-wide. For further information, a literature review is provided.   For more information on Ed Tech Next reports, please click here.
