Collaborating through Voxer and Google Drive

This week we have had the opportunity to collaborate with another 2nd grade class during . This was not our normal weekly math task tweet exchange over twitter. After working on a fairy tale unit for the last couple of weeks, which included reading and writing our own fairy tales and fractured fairy tales,we set out to take it one step further. Students took their learning to the next level using Voxer and Google Drive through Google Classroom to collaborate while writing their fractured fairy tales together. After working on a fairy tale unit for the last couple of weeks which included reading and writing our own fractured fairy tales. We connected with our twitter friends who had been doing the same unit to work on writing a fractured fairy tale together.    Students chatted through voxer and shared ideas as they wrote their stories that was shared with them through google drive. Voxer allowed them to build on to the relationship and make more connections throughout the process. They absolutely loved hearing and working with their “friends” they had only been tweeting with all year.

Their stories they created will be put in book creator and then uploaded to iTunes for their stories to be shared with the world.
