Google Collaboration and Developing New Authors
In Mrs. Cramer's fifth-grade class at Glacier Ridge Elementary, a free-writing activity gave birth to four new authors. Acadia, Logan, Aleyah, and Alyssa learned how to collaborate using Google Docs. Google gave students the opportunity to write together... any time, any place, and from any device. Their short story became a 42-page book, part 1 in a series. The authors are now in sixth grade and continue to write together to create additional books in the series. Read their book here: Great Scott, The Hidden Power
Check out my interview with the authors! I love hearing these kids talk about their writing and how it changed them.
