This was a fun morning of learning! Of course it started with a Twitter post about five ways to collaborate as a team using Google Docs. Well, I was working at home alone so I needed to learn this with a virtual team. I created the document, shared it via Twitter and one person dropped in and together we found it did not work. @cnelson2 did more research and shared a link saying the feature should work. I kept poking around until I found the key. In Google Docs, upper right corner select settings and then document settings, editing and new version of Google Docs. I created a new page, shared the link allowing others to edit. And within minutes 20-30 people all joined in to play and learn.
I opened up my Smart Notebook software and recorded the activity. People were chatting brainstorming, trying to type over each other and learning together. This is what learning should be exploring with others, learning asking questions, solving real problems and being part of a global community. How can we transform education to align with the reality students will face when they enter the real world?
