Collaboration in, and beyond, the Technology and Design classroom
This is all the Scoops I wanted to include on my other Scoop.it with the related heading but I felt they weren't directly related to the specified topic. These scoops offer inspiration for collaborative technology and design projects, outline the benefits of collaboration, offer more collaboration tools and more.
They had to go but they are too good to lose!
