This morning I was checking out the Edutopia website http://www.edutopia.org/. It’s a great site, if you don’t subscribe, I really suggest you do. Today they have a poll on whether or not technology increases or impedes collaboration. Interestingly, most people feel that technology decreases collaboration. That is different from my experience, both on a professional development and educational level.
On a professional level, technology has only increased the amount of collaboration I have been a part of – the online community has been instrumental in my growth as an educator. On an educational level, technology has taught my students a different way to collaborate, in fact some have learned how to collaborate because of technology.
I would be interested to hear people’s thoughts and stories.
