During the pandemic, side-by-side student collaboration took a back seat to online learning and distanced in-person or hybrid learning.
But student collaboration is a cornerstone of 21st-century skill-building, teaching students how to listen to others, build off of ideas that aren’t their own, compromise, and work as a team.
If you’re looking for a new student collaboration tool for your school team to try, or to try in your own classroom, take a look at the tools below.
1. Drawp for School is a K-12 workflow management platform with built-in design tools, swipe-to-share collaboration, standards-aligned content, and unlimited cloud storage. Students use Drawp creativity tools to add drawings, voice recordings, text, and photos to assignments. Teachers use Drawp to create, distribute, collect, and give written or verbal feedback on assignments. A new Drawp Resource Marketplace website provides teachers with an easy-to-access repository of educational resources to download and share. Partially funded by the National Science Foundation, the platform includes robust accessibility features such as an add-on language scaffolding tool, text-to-speech and voice recording. For iOS and Android.
