Collaborative Work Spaces

Collaborative or shared work spaces on a network are files or folders that more than one person can access. Another way to think of a collaborative space is to think of the group of people who might use it. It could be a group of students working on a project together. It could be the teacher and students of one class. To help them collaborate, all members of a group have access to the same files and folders. Each member of the group can use this space to share work and information with the others. (See "Use Your School Network to Collaborate" in the archives of the Fraser Report on K-12 Technology.)
