Collaborative Groups 2017

Collaborative Document in the LabThis week the sixth graders did an activity to build a collaborative document on “Advice for Future Sixth Graders.” They used a chat window to plan and collaborate as they worked on this project. Sometimes it was challenging to coordinate their ideas and their typing in the document, but in the end they were able put their ideas together without actually talking out loud to each other.

Chat Activities 2017

Over the past couple days, the sixth graders used an online chat room to discuss digital citizenship and cyberbullying while practicing good God honoring habits when online. I was very pleased with their thoughtful ideas as we chatted – it is a great way for EVERYONE to have a voice during a discussion.
