CACCPublishing in the CloudWho owns what?As educators, we know how to collaborate and are compelled to share, that is if our kindergardten teachers taught this to us.All kidding aside, one of the key elements of working in a Web 2.0 environment is to be able to collaborate with others. How can we teach our students to collaborate if we are not collaborating ourselves.The accessibility issue is easy, the content lives on a server somewhereConstructivisit pedagogy means that all who are using Web 2.0 or even Web 3.0 tools are not using the web passively, rather they are taking advantage of applications that live on the web and not on the hard drive of your computer.

New Media Consortium, Horizon Report 2012The world of work is increasingly collaborative, driving changes in the way student projects are structured. Because employers value collaboration as a critical skill, silos both in the workplace and at school are being abandoned in favor of collective intelligence. To facilitate more teamwork and group communication, projects rely on tools such as wikis, Google Docs, Skype, and easily shared file-storage sites including Dropbox.
The New Evaluation for StudentsStudents are increasingly evaluated not just on the overall outcome, but also on the success of the group dynamic. In many cases, the way an online collaboration tool is used is an equally important outcome…such sites (Wikis) preserve the process and the multiple perspectives that lead to the end results. (Horizon Report, HE, 2012)
