Abstract

Building Community through Telecollaboration (BCT) is a province-wide initiative with educators and administrators from English school boards across Quebec. It aims to encourage, facilitate and support collaboration among students, teachers and educational leaders to enhance learning by using ICT. In this paper, we present (a) a conceptual framework for the BCT project based on the participatory design research approach and (b) teachers’ collaborative activities and collaborative student projects in three teacher groups, which are divided according to the cycles they are teaching in. In addition, we highlight the roles of cycle group leaders as teacher leaders and teacher researchers for facilitating communication and collaboration among teachers in the teacher groups.
