Collaborative Projects

Web-based communication tools, such as email, blogs, “web-cams”, and computer microphones, have created additional learning opportunities. Students can interact with peers and subject experts around the world, extending their learning environment beyond their own classroom. As a result, teachers can create projects that require students to obtain information from sources not available locally. Furthermore, students can also receive assistance with homework by communicating online with peers and teachers outside of the classroom. Online communication tools offer the opportunity to redefine how, with whom, and when learning occurs (Glazer, 2004).
