One of the most valuable components of Storyline is collaboration. The social skills that develop through working and problem solving with others in a Storyline are exactly the kinds of collaborative skills that are necessary in larger arenas. Increasingly the problems we face are such that they require collaborative solutions: within communities, between states and between countries. So collaboration between students working on a Storyline project can truly prepare students for the future. That said, the question arises, how might one group of students work with another group of students in another town on the same Storyline? Or on a larger scale, how might an international collaboration be achieved between groups of students who live thousands of miles apart, or are in different time zones or who speak different mother tongues?
