Collaborative learning is not new but with the wide range of Internet applications that support this way of teaching and learning, it makes the efforts more fun and easier to facilitate. As students are tuned in to social media Web site and mobile devices, it makes sense to use these avenues in order to educate them. Besides Facebook and Twitter, there are a host of dedicate collaborating tools on the Internet that need to be explored by educators for suitability to their subject matter and teaching style.
On Wednesday, June 2, 2010 between the hours of 10am to 2pm, Mount Royal University is hosting a Tech Test Drive on their campus. The program features a host of collaborative learning ideas, tools and techniques used and presented by MRU faculty. There will be lightening presentation of 5 minutes each, 20 minute presentations as well as booth set up when you can explore and discuss collaborative learning applications.
