I'm gearing up to do my first collaborative writing assignment - group writing conclusions to an experiment. I know Etherpad is now OOS, but I found http://primarypad.com/ which has the same look and feel. http://piratepad.net/ is the same but I can't tell if it's going away with Etherpad?

I read a blog entry at Free Tech 4 Teachers about pre-populating a prompt: students will be in groups of 3-4 and each group needs its own pad. What are your tips, suggestions for making this first time use happy and effective?

Thanks!

I agree with Colleen. From what I can tell, Twiddla only costs if you register and want more options. As a basic collaborative tool, it should work with no additional cost.
Here is another!

TitanPad.
Does anybody use Google Wave?
My problem with Google Wave is that you have to go through a process to use it, epescially with students. I think that the computers also have to be operating with Google Chrome. This makes it hard to use with students. Having said this, I think it would be awesome to use with students.
I'd like to share a cheatsheet for Google Wave: http://goo.gl/nGsD (available in English, French, and Spanish)

I just found ietherpad and came here see if folks wanted to try it out.  Then of course I found this conversation.  Gotta love classroom 2.0.  Thanks for all the good information!
