    Help students apply the model (activity triangle) to their research topics
    Challenge them to reflect on their theoretical choices
    Collaboration:
    Cycle through tasks
    Model, feedback, report

  • Takeaway…
    If there’s an app for that
    If typing is minimal
    Then
    Supports easy, fluid collaboration
    Supports sharing of ideas
    So, we’d like to see
    Richer collaboration features
    Easier sharing, passing of content
    Easier input
