Task 3: Read, reflect and Tweet (no more than half an hour)

Take a look at the five case studies of students using technology to do group work. It will probably take you about 15-20 minutes to read them all.

Think about all the issues for suporting student group work that these cases suggest. There is a very, very, large range of them. Some of the issues concern the technologies that students use, some of which are appropriate to the task and some not; others concern the people involved, how they work and their preferences; while others concern the design and the tasks they were asked to do. 

As you are reading, try to ask yourself, what is the support issue here, how should a tutor deal with it? Each time you spot one of these, tweet your analysis (issue + response) using the course hashtag #tooc14. We will compile these into a paper.li newspaper.
