The Impact of Technology on Student Collaboration

Patti Jones and Carole Jones

Technology has had an impact on student collaboration. The power of Web 2.0 and 3.0 tools has connected the classroom to the world and the world to the classroom. Our presentation will give you a glimpse into the world of student collaboration with and without technology.

Please note that SlideRocket is not optimized for mobile devices and is best viewed on a computer. We suggest that you watch through the slides in auto mode (you can click to pause and play, though) and then return to the slides with links to resources and documents (indicated by blue text). The linked documents are excellent resources for expanding your use of collaborative tools – whether you are just beginning to use collaborative tools or experienced.


Synthesizing activity:  Collaborative tools are numerous, and ever expanding.  Knowing which tools meet your students’ needs is an important step in developing ways to use these tools in your classroom. This activity is to collaboratively build a digital database of tools.

Please complete our easy to use form below. We would like you to share a collaborative tool you currently use or one you have seen and are curious about. Please provide an explanation on how it could be used and the potential benefits for students.  Appropriate grade ranges are helpful, but not required. Adult learning environments are included, too.

“I am what I create and share and others build on.” (J.S. Brown, 2011)

We have emailed the resulting information as a summary and as a spreadsheet for you to use, share and continue to build as you weave collaborative tools into your teaching and learning.

Thank you!
