I'm excited today to share Collaborize Classroom, one of my favorite online resources for students and teachers. Collaborize Classroom is an online discussion board that is safe, private, and geared especially toward secondary classrooms. I use this site to deepen classroom discussion, teach online communication skills, get my grading done faster, and ensure inclusive student participation. It is also a great way to improve student writing and brainstorm before essay assignments. This video blog will briefly describe setting up the site and feature my favorite parts of this system from a teacher perspective. If you have questions, or suggestions, we'd love to hear about them in the comment section below. Thanks!
