Post from Free Tech for Teachers:
So you want to have your students collaborate on a document or project, but you don't want to go through the hassle or potential legal entanglements of signing your kids up for free email accounts and what-not, hmmm? This Post from Free Tech for Teachers will explain just how to do that.
There are three tools that allow collaborative document editing without the need for registration:
- Primary Pad (from the UK, this uses an interface called Ether Pad. Paid subscriptions are also available)
- Entri (Uses a blog-style HTML editing einterface)
- Titan Pad (identical interface as Primary Pad, but a little more "grown up." Plus, FREE accounts for your "team" or class)
These services allow you, the teacher, to create an account and allow others to collaborate and/or create documents.
Here are ideas to integrate these and other collaborative tools into your classroom activities.
