10 tools that simplify collaboration
A collaboration tool is something that helps people collaborate. The term is often used to mean collaborative software, but collaboration tools were being used before computers existed. A piece of paper, for example, can be used as collaboration tool. Everything that helps to solve a predefined task together in a group more easily is an effective collaborative tool. Collaboration means, in this context, working together to fulfill a shared, collective, bounded goal. See also Sources Eugene Eric Kim (2005).
Best Online Collaboration Tools - Free and paid tools for online collaboration

Collaborative learning is essentially people working together to solve a problem, create a product, or derive meaning from a body of material. A central question or problem serves to organize and drive activities, and encourage application, analysis, and synthesis of course material. While the landscape of technology that can be used to support central activities of collaborative learning is vast and varied, it is often lumped together under a single label: "collaboration tools." Given this vast and distributed landscape of tools, the difficulty of finding one or a set of tools to meet your goals can be time intensive. Tools that exist to support collaboration can: Communication Many features of collaboration tools are geared toward the facilitation and management of effective communication among team members.

5 Fun and Mathematical Ways to Teach Your Child About Money
This is a guest post by Troy Edwards who writes for the “What is Economics?” blog. For many of today’s students, having to take and master math has as much appeal as a visit to the dentist. For this reason, the savvy parent recognizes that a little “creativity” and fun can go a long way. It can be considered the equivalent of a mother administering a little honey with a spoon of medicine to make it more palatable. photo credit: ~jjjohn~ Since money is a currency of exchange that kids can understand and relate to, there are many ways to work monetary concepts into exercises, real life examples, and games to achieve educational goals. Here are a few things to consider. With this in mind, here are 5 fun and mathematical ways to teach your child about money. 1. photo credit: merfam Allow the little ones to accompany you to the next visit to your local grocers. 2.Play with coins photo credit: midnightglory 3. photo credit: Thomas Hawk 4.Add a language photo credit: bradipo 5.Be the banker
Here are eleven techniques that you can use in your classroom that will help you achieve effective group management and control. They have been adapted from an article called: "A Primer on Classroom Discipline: Principles Old and New" by Thomas R. McDaniel, Phi Delta Kappan, September 1986. 1. Be sure you have the attention of everyone in your classroom before you start your lesson. Inexperienced teachers sometimes think that by beginning their lesson, the class will settle down. The focusing technique means that you will demand their attention before you begin. A soft spoken teacher often has a calmer, quieter classroom than one with a stronger voice. 2. An effective way to marry this technique with the first one is to include time at the end of the period for students to do activities of their choosing. The teacher is more willing to wait for class attention when he knows there is extra time to meet his goals and objectives. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Make ample use of praise.

On Common Core | Cultivating Collaboration
Cultivating Collaboration: The First “C” The Common Core (CCSS) has arrived. We’ve had time to study the standards, peruse the list of recommended materials, and explore the suggested curriculum maps and assessments. Now, how do we begin to put this nationwide initiative into operation? What meaningful steps forward can we take? In this column, we’ll focus on the ideas that shape our approach to the standards. Librarians, teachers, administrators, parents, and children must work in concert. The best place for the collaboration to begin is around the topic of quality nonfiction. Identifying Quality Nonfiction LiteratureWhile there are no hard and fast rules on what constitutes quality nonfiction, there is consensus on some basics. Finding Quality Nonfiction LiteratureEducators have an immediate need to identify quality nonfiction literature in all the content areas. Here is our starter list and a brief description of what each offers. Robert F.

As the lone librarian and technology integration specialist for an entire district, regularly meeting her K-8 students on a fixed schedule, Miller does not teach alone. She models collaboration by forming instructional partnerships with educators around the world. Two Libraries, One Voice, a joint blog documenting Miller’s co-teaching experience with John Schumacher, Brook Forest Elementary School’s librarian 338 miles away in Illinois, illustrates how technology transcends geography in the new millennium. Among the highlights of her partnerships with educators in Michigan, New Hampshire, and Philadelphia, Miller featured ongoing, multi-pronged collaborations that are open to any educator wishing to include his or her students, such as Somewhat Virtual Book Club and World Read Aloud Day. If George Siemens’ statement, “The network is the learning,” is true, then Miller and her colleagues built a formidable learning platform for their students—and many, many others. Common Core
