Collaborative Web Sites: Draw and Analyze with Others

Several months ago I shared Flockdraw a simple collaboration tool that enabled teachers or students to share content across the classrooms. One of Flockdraw's strength was its simplicity, so you might be ready to move on to a full featured collaboration tool. I am going to share two more that are powerful collaboration tools for the classroom.
Dabbleboard & CoSketch are Web 2.0 collaboration sites, unlike Flockdraw you can import your own images to modify, manipulate and share.

Educational Examples:

  • Upload a battle map and have students draw troop movements
  • Upload a picture and separate into quadrants for a "History Alive" type of analysis
  • Challenge another class down the hall or across the globe to a game of Vocabulary "Pictionary"
