It’s no secret that working in a group can be more difficult and frustrating than working on your own. One valuable opportunity that DH tools offer is an easier mode of cooperation. Such is the case with Crowdmap, a tool for collaborative mapping. The ability for multiple members to input data can result in a fuller map less subject to the risk of inaccuracy than a single author map. What ways could you use this tool to foster productive thought? Would such a tool fit well into the classroom?
