***2017 EDU: TKR: Working together apart: Collaboration and teamwork in virtual worlds

Working together apart: 
Collaboration and teamwork in virtual worlds
We can collaborate and work in teams in in virtual worlds.  Here I have collected some articles about teamwork, group functioning, and the special aspects of collaboration in virtual worlds.
-
We are used to working with other people in the world of work (after we get out of school).    In the past that meant getting people together in a room.  In the virtual world, we can get together in a virtual room.  That kind of collaboration is cheaper, faster, better, if we know how to do it.  But we never got Collaboration 101 in college.  It wasn't offered, although a few places, used  like engineering and business, and computer science taught it as part of the standard practice in their fields.
-
Virtual worlds are naturally suited to collaboration and practice in collaboration skills. Here are some articles about how to develop and use these skills.
