Collaboration Tools

Platforms and programs that support either asynchronous or real-time collaborative work between students, classes, and teachers.

Tools that helps students, teachers, parents and other education stakeholders exchange information and ideas, work together on tasks, ask and answer questions and complete other activities together.  Collaboration tools can focus on interactions in or out of learning environments and span multiple environments.  These tools can focus on very specific tasks like enabling a group of students to complete a homework assignment or be much broader like creating a web-based environment for teachers to share best practices.
