Group Table - Group Academic Planner

Group Table is a new collaboration tool designed for students. Group Table can be used by students to plan group projects, share resources, store files, and email each other. I gave Group Table a test drive this evening and found it to be easy to set up an account and create groups. The binder feature is a good utility for organizing files relevant to your group. Group Table is intended for use by college students, but it could also be useful for high school students. Two similar tools that high school students may want to try are Wiggio and Soshiku.

Applications for Education
Group Table could be a good resource for high school and college students to share notes, share files, and organize group projects. Group Table could be particularly useful for students taking courses that only meet once a week, but need to share thoughts and comments about the readings for the course.
