Collaboration is working with others to do a task and to achieve shared goals.

Collaboration is becoming a new and important source of competitive advantage.

We are a global community whose successes and failures hinge on each other. Economically, culturally, and educationally, we are connected. The future of our students depends on the state of the global community in regards to employment, community, and culture.

Many Schoolworld website have a blog in which educators can create a blog to direct collaboration, hold conversations, upload documents, add video and pictures. There are many free sites such as PB Wiki in which educators can create a wiki page to use within their classroom and share with other groups as well. We are going to focus on Taking It Global because there are free elements and for high school students, the social community works well to expose students to all cultures and raise students’ awareness of the world around them.
