CIESE Online Tele-Collaborative Classroom Projects

CIESE has collected some exemplary global computer-assisted collaboration projects. This set is intrinsically global because the outcomes depend on comparisons from environments around the world. Key examples: circumference of the globe and the impact of living near the equator; boiling points in different places; the role of craters in various settings; and the contents of ponds. Students actually become true scientists and enjoy collaboration with their colleagues all over the globe.

7 Steps For Starting A Global Collaboration Project

Pernille Ripp, a seventh grade teacher at Oregon Middle School in Wisconsin, took "a spark of an idea" — to connect students and teachers worldwide by reading one single book aloud — and turned it into a successful global collaboration project.

In this ISTE article, she offers a few simple steps to set you up for success.

Computer-assisted collaboration projects show students that the Internet can do more than just replace the library and the telephone. Working with fellow students around the globe, that can learn about much more than just the course work at hand.
