Authentic collaboration means students:

  • work together on a common task, project or goal
  • have equal contribution and accountability
  • are dependent on the whole group.

Collaboration includes the sharing and refinement of ideas, problem-solving, designing, prototyping, testing, evaluating, recording and presenting.
