Using "TitanPad" Cloud Software
The 5th grade technology classes benefited from Mrs. M's coursework through Penn State University. As part of her courses in both Web 2.0 Technologies and Instructional Design, Mrs. M created a unit that focuses on synchronous document editing. The students are put into groups, but are not seated together. They communicate safely via their computers in a passworded environment and are able to chat with each other as well as edit a text document at the same time. It's a useful introduction to Google Apps For Education that the school is considering utilizing next year. And, it's a lot of fun!
