COLLABORATION balanced with Mentorship...

Our collaboration with the grade elevens is now complete....a learning process for all involved.  

After the collaboration with some of @ballantynedj 's grade 11 students, I have a new perspective on what collaboration and mentorship can mean.  Working together with these students and by providing each other with real-time feedback/suggestions around the project, the group of us @darthclaudiaa, @YatesV, @yoMsDunn, @daley1s) (and the students) were able to successfully learn from one another through multiple perspectives. 

With all of the technological resources at our fingertips the grade eleven's "Simulated World Cultures" project and our collaboration were a great success.  By the time the project was completed, we had managed to use a handful of innovative and engaging digital resources including:  Facebook, TodaysMeet, Twitter, Google Docs, and, to facilitate our exchanges.  Wow, would it be fair to say that teaching and learning have come a long way...............???????

Google Documents as a collaborative tool

Now that the project is complete, I look forward to using these resources in my own 2.0 classroom.  
Thanks @zbpipe and @ballantynedj for this opportunity.
