|Abstract:||Educators are increasingly seeking opportunities to engage their students in active learning through authentic experiences. These authentic curricula, however, often require students to communicate with their peers to a degree that is difficult to achieve within the rigid structure of most schools. This paper addresses the hopes and fears of three teachers' experience integrating collaborative software to support approximately 370 students in their efforts to communicate and collaborate within the competitive context of a legislative role-playing simulation. Following a brief overview of the design, the paper address the teachers' fears, hopes, and remaining challenges.|
