  2. 2. Intro to Blackboard Collaborate February 7, 2012 What is Blackboard Collaborate? "Combining the capabilities of industry leaders Wimba and Elluminate, Blackboard Collaborate provides a COMPREHENSIVE LEARNING PLATFORM designed specifically for education. It is helping thousands of higher education, K-12, professional, corporate, and government organizations worldwide deliver a more EFFECTIVE learning experience through ONLINE, BLENDED, and MOBILE learning. And it will help you open up all-new aspects of real time, or anytime, learning to engage more students and improve outcomes." http://www.blackboard.com/Platforms/Collaborate/Overview.aspx
  3. 3. Intro to Blackboard Collaborate February 7, 2012 How Schools Use It Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) serves more than 13,200 students in grades pre-K through 12 in Albemarle County, Virginia "In addition to using Blackboard Collaborate as a professional development tool, there are limitless possibilities for using Blackboard Collaborate to promote cross-curricular projects between schools across grade levels. One example is 6th grade social studies students would conduct research using a digital tool and create a digital project and present rough drafts to 11th grade students using Blackboard Collaborate. In turn, the 11th grade students would promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility by using Blackboard Collaborate to interact with the presentations and provide feedback prior to project completion. This project also highlights an example of how Blackboard Collaborate would be used to strengthen and build a greater sense of community across our school district." - James E.
