Collaborative Learning Near and Far Published 5 August 2020 As adults, we collaborate quite often in our work environment, in some cases on a daily basis.

When children first learn to write, the idea of combining words and pictures comes naturally. With time and rigid education practices, however, we lose that freedom. The activities in this guide will be designed to give that freedom back to students of all ages.
