· Was it easy to define objectives and criteria?
· How did you distribute the work?
· How did you feel about your own participation?

· Were there any problems, or misunderstandings?
Collaboration is the basis for bringing together the knowledge, experience and skills of multiple team members to contribute to the development of a new product more effectively than individual team members performing their narrow tasks in support of product development.

First of all, as I have already posted in
Activity 1, section 3, module 1 - group 1.3 – Chestnut,
as all the Chestnut members seemed interested in the topic Teaching in Second Life but belonged to different fields, it was suggested to define subtopics according to our professional fields. So I searched for educational places related to teaching English in SL, Stefan searched for places related to Maths teaching.After searching for the places, I and Stefan met inworld and created our notecard / travel guide with two places each of us found. Unfortunately we forgot to take snapshots of our collaborative work inworld!
Then we agreed that Stefan would present it inworld as I had to be at school during Monday, 22nd December.
I think that we all would have participated more in another time of the year as we all were very busy with our professional duties and if we all belong to the same time zone. Nevertheless, I and Stephan managed to work in a cooperative and collaborative way. And, in my opinion, it was very meaningful and enriching as we shared our knowledge, helped and learnt from each other.
Taking into account this experience, next peer activity will be easier :)
