Today was the first day Clarence and I had our students write together using Google Docs and the chatroom. With a gr. 8 and 7 student from each class in the group of 4, we planned a fairly easy writing activity – a spooky poem.

As we should have expected, there were clitches. Some students didn’t get the shared doc on the first attempt and Clarence had issues with hardware failure. On the upside, Skype held in for the entire time, the kids had fun getting to know their new classmates from another province and some groups even created some pretty decent work:)
