With itslearning, students can work from anywhere at anytime. This is an ideal situation for collaborative projects. Using the elements in itslearning as the power of various web tools, students can collaborate from virtually anywhere.
Dawn James, a 4th grade teacher at Brookwood Elementary in Forsyth County, GA, tasked her students with a group collaborative project in social studies. The project was grounded in research about the colonies. The research was done with a combination of online and hard copy resources. Once the students completed their assigned research, they created their slide portion of the project in a Google Slides. In this way, the students could work from anywhere and keep up with what others in their group were doing. Upon completion of the project, the students came together to present face to face.
HOW WAS THIS DONE?
- The teacher used "add file/link" to embed three GoogleSlide presentations, making sure that the Google settings allowed anyone with the link to edit the presentation. You will notice that there are three presentations listed in the course tree.
- She assigned groups of students to their region. The students accessed their presentation in itslearning and were able to edit the content inline.
