9. Would YOU use ThinkBinder as an online collaborative tool? Add your name to this box if you would try this social media tool.

9.1. R Burks: I think this is a tool that's definitely worth giving a try. Seems to me that it's not for everyone, but students who enjoy group activities and studying with peers would love this tool!

9.2. M. Williams: Absolutely! I think some students really benefit from working with their peers; and discussing ideas with other students who are currently learning the same thing (globally) is amazing. My only concern would be students getting the wrong information or making the wrong conceptual connections. It is very important for an expert (teacher/instructor) to frame certain ideas and assure enduring understandings are comprehended and committed to memory.

9.2.1. Great point, Marissa. To avoid misinformation, I would recommend asking for and posting references, i.e. links, videos, etc.
