Communities of Learners Values Collaborative writing helps students overcome first person, single author inertia at the planning, revision, and editing stages of composition. Real-time collaborative invention allows individual learners to experience a wide range of approaches, styles, and strategies for achieving the goals of each assignment. As a tool for revision, collaborative writing helps students gain the ability to view their own writing from a third person perspective. When applied to editing, collaborative writing takes advantage of open source efficiency for discovering and fixing "bugs" or errors. Beyond these practical or tactical strengths, collaborative writing exercises contribute to more cooperative, active, and student-centered learning in general. Standards, guidelines, and principles for learning tasks emerge from practical and cooperative work. Thus, the primary goals and theories of the course become shared pathways to success, rather than ideal prescriptions or rules that can never be fully attained. http://www.d.umn.edu/~adanders/ Strategy Collaborative
