Facilitating Collaborative Learning: 20 Things You Need to Know From the Pros

Facilitating Collaborative Learning: 20 Things You Need to Know From the Pros | Educators & PLNs | Scoop.it
Leanna K Johnson's insight:

Now after participating several years in global contests of very large projects, I've seen how it engages and impacts all of my students in satisfying ways.
