Collaborative Note Taking Experiment with Google Drive

On November 16, 2012, my class participated in an experimental collaborative note taking project through Google Drive. Students had the opportunity to contribute to regular discussion section while also typing notes and commenting on each other’s work using the comments feature in Google Drive. This document is linked to the class website I designed for my Friday section. Via this website, students can also find all of the class media moments archived along with helpful links to website that can help students further develop their brainstorming, research, and writing skills. I added a page to our class website titled, “Interesting Connections” where I brought trending articles and relative news reports to my students’ attention. One of my teaching goals was to inspire students to make connections between overarching historical trends and the current issues and debates that were shaping American society and culture.
