Have you ever worked with a group of people on a project? Or asked a friend to help you with an assignment? If so, you were being collaborative, or working with someone else, to reach a goal.
This type of teamwork introduces a variety of skills that will be valuable for you later in the workforce, such as communication, compromise and collective effort.
Social media applications can help you to collaborate on school projects. Here are some links on using the different features of several popular social media apps.
Cooperation: teamwork, respect, and proper behaviour
Communication: sharing ideas, explaining, and listening
Delegate: who does what, everyone works and is involved in multiple parts of project
