2.1 Collaborative communication

Have you ever set up a video chat? Started a blog? Written something with classmates online?

Developing this competency involves:

  • Becoming familiar with and comfortable using a range of digital collaboration tools, such as file-sharing systems, collaborative editing and annotation tools, discussion forums, blogs, online chat, or web-conferencing.
  • Learning how to effectively and conscientiously use these tools to work with others both synchronously and asynchronously.
  • Developing critical perspectives and skills needed to co-create knowledge.
  • Valuing user-generated content and evaluating contributions made by others.
