Personally, my digital move with literature circles was to get students to complete their notes in a collaborative document. This was in a time before Google Classroom. It was a bit hit and miss. I think in hindsight that I really needed to work on the trust aspect to it all a bit more.
Gill, I really liked your point about how providing students with an online space. This reminds me of Dave White’s discussion of ‘coalescent spaces‘ and the opportunities we provide students online.
