#transformlearning Tuesday

Last Updated on Oct 6, 2015 at 4:54pm | Garrett County Public Schools

This week's #transformlearning Tuesday submission comes from Donna Deal, of Route Forty Elementary School!

Route Forty has teamed with professor Emily K. Milleson and her education students at Frostburg State University to create an EBuddy program. Students in grades 4 and 5 create a draft of a writing assignment in google docs. Ms. Milleson assigns one of her students to a student at Route Forty. Through the suggest button under comments, FSU students comment and question the RF students. Through this interaction, the RF are encouraged to improve their writing before a final face to face meeting between the two groups occurs where final revision and editing happens before FSU students use a rubric to grade the RF students' work.

Collaboration made possible through digital learning! Thanks, Donna!
