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?
