Being clear on collaboration

Clark Quinn

Technologies for collaboration and cooperation

Collaborative Modelling in AR (and VR)

Clark Quinn

And one that I thought was intriguing was co-creating, in particular collaboratively creating models that were explanatory and predictive. And, we know that collaboration is more powerful than solo ideation. So, a real opportunity is to collaborate to create models. What I was thinking of, extending my thoughts about AR in general , that annotating the world is valuable, but how about collaboratively annotating the world?

Collaboration and Cooperation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Can we say it has a direct parallelism with the distinction Collaboration vs Cooperation? Collaboration belongs to groups, while cooperation is typical of a network.

Interactivity - in the case of a collaboration, information typically diffuses from the centre to the periphery as people receive their 'marching orders'.

The difference between social learning and social collaboration

Jane Hart

In my framework of Modern Workplace Learning (see diagram on right) I use the term s ocial collaboration to label an important new element of work of the modern-day L&D department.

Collaborative co-design

Clark Quinn

In my previous post , I mentioned that we needed to start thinking about designing not just formal learning content, or formal learning experiences, but learning experiences in the context of the informal learning resources (job aids, social tools), and moreover, learning in the context of a workflow. In short, tying back to my post on collaboratively designing job aids, I think we need to be collaboratively designing workflows.
