Writely

Have you heard about Writely? It is a tool for writing and collaboration that I read about over on Thoughts on Teaching. I went on over to check it out, and I think it is going to be pretty cool. I am trying it out on myself first to see how I think it might work for my students, but I think it has real potential. If anyone has looked at it, please let me know what you think and how you think it might be used in a classroom. I would like to see if I can use it for class editing of a document or collaboration on a story, for instance.

Anyway,check Writely out. I'll be interested in your comments.

Hi, Nancy

Writely is a very interesting tool. A group of Brazilian students used it to share some Christmas traditions with a group of Portuguese students.
You can see the result here:
