Mr Nicholls, Mr Murray and Myself have been experimenting with iWork as a way of collaborating and developing projects. Basically iWork.com beta allows for you to upload a Pages, Keynote, or Numbers document to a virtual site where people can comment and annotate your ideas. So if you put together a draft Pages document you can get interested parties to leave stickies with comments to help you move your ideas on, or you can leave a "note' on the idea and this feedback is collated so you have a history of responses and comments.
Could this be an effective way for us to collaborate on our summer project? Could staff share an outline of their teaching plans and invite students to have some input on how a topic might be taught, or the different options for students to share their learning? Could it be an effective way for the school council to share their plans and get feedback?
For those without access to iWork 09 there are lots of Web 2.0 tools available to enhance collaboration, some of which we've trialled on this blog. If you come across any more, please send me the link so I can add it to our Links list.
