The ABC's of Collaboration

The ABC's of Collaboration | Connectivism in the classroom | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 13, 2014 8:08 PM

Dan Pontrefract has published a book called Flat Army: Creating a Connected and Engaged Organization. In this book he define collaboration as:

The unfettered allowance and encouragement of employees to both contribute and consume knowledge, insight or ideas with any direct relationship via professional or personal networks to achieve an outcome.

In addition to this definition he has created two infographics that look at the ABC's of Collaboration.

One infographic provides a key word for each letter of the alphabet as well as an image (as shown above). The second infographic also includes a definition for each word.

We know that collaboration is not always easy for students. The two versions available would be useful for different grade levels. In the younger grades students might share what they believe these words mean, or you may choose one or two key words to use for specific tasks. The version with definitions might be useful in promoting a dialogue with older students. Do  they agree with the definition? Is there a word that they think might better reflect collaboration that takes place in  a classroom?

Gary Harwell's curator insight, July 14, 2014 12:16 AM

Our students have to collaborate.
