I’m offering for your reading pleasure today the blogs from my Information Technology for Leaders course. They serve as a good example of collaborative learning assignments that use a current technology. Not only are you assigning group work, which entails negotiation and critical thinking, but you are asking students to write for a real world audience. That elevates the assignment from what students often think of as busy work. And if your blog receives posts from out there somewhere, then you can see the immediate results of such public writing.
I hope you find something interesting and consider posting a response.
