Abstract

The authors' previous work in studying of how digital students use technology for collaboration as members of international teams is updated with the strong use of social media. The authors describe a project pairing students from their two universities who work together throughout the semester. Students must select and use web-based collaboration tools to communicate with their partners to produce a tangible work product demonstrating their research of an upcoming technology trend. The paper shares the students' experiences using technology to complete this assignment designed to build digital literacy skills, by participating in an online collaboration that unites technology, culture, social and digital media. The results show a strong tendency in using social media for improving their digital literacy skills though a constant, constructivist share of knowledge and experiences.
