Collaborate and communicate (Session 5 Capstone 2)

The cornerstones of exceptional educators continue to be collaboration and communication. Technology has simply expanded the methods educators can successfully collaborate and communicate. Using digital tools such as Skype, Google docs and ePals, educators can stretch far beyond traditional classroom walls in order to provide their students with truly 21st century learning skills.


However, you must be able to distinguish between collaboration and communication. As defined at, communication is the interexchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs. Collaboration, on the other hand, is defined as working together. The core difference is that while with communication, people are sharing information; with collaboration people are creating something together rather than separately. Technology has made it so that people may collaborate across vast distances and learning abilities in a way that has never been possible before.
