Tic Tac Toe?

I've been struggling with teaching my 4th graders about sharing documents using OneDrive. Their worlds were opened this year when we gave them email and OneDrive accounts.  Before then, their documents didn't go any further than a flash drive and a printed paper.

Things are different now. They can create, share, and collaborate online in the cloud, and this isn't an easy concept to teach them.

So, today we played Tic Tac Toe.  Half the students created a board (3x3 table) and shared with the other half class.  They had to play 3 games and tell me who won each game.  And it was a success. Everyone saw collaboration on their screen and got a feel for how the process works.

The best was hearing the collaboration in the air as students were cheering and jeering across the room and helping each other figure out the process. I'd call it a success.

Maybe next week we'll do something serious.
