Collaboration Extra Outcome

During this term the Director of Curriculum and myself set up a WIKI for a couple of the more reluctant collaborators (teachers) and their students. Interesting result....... the students became actively engaged with happily posting their comments regarding the inquiry based unit we were involved in. In my ongoing discussion with the DOL regarding this shift in thinking and activity, we feel that the teachers came on board from seeing their students being actively engaged. So interesting point , who is teaching who? Also, the question is what is collaboration, well my understanding is that it involves active dialogue/activity between more than one person, this can be meaningful or as is the case as above can come over time with modelling and students at times becoming the leaders in collaborative effort.
