Word Processors in Collaborative Writing

Reading other people’s blog comments on the topic,  I feel they are conditioned by the diversity of realities they live. Whereas in many cases, computer literacy is not an issue, in others, computer access is extremely limited – let alone an Internet connection.

As Nadia & Veronica point out, many of the activities suggested in the articles are “pre-word processor” updates. Yet, they may come in very handy (or may be difficult to carry out) depending on the circumstances.

Another issue to take into account is the characteristics of the course being taught, eg number of meetings a week, school regulations in terms of “paper” work and number of individual assignments sts are expected to submit.

All in all, I believe it was very interesting to read about these techniques, which are very flexible in terms of implementation.
