    4. 4. Collaborative Co-operative Collaboration is a philosophy of interaction and personal lifestyle whereas Co-operation is a structure of interaction designed to facilitate the accomplishment of an end product or goal. Panitz 1996
    5. 5. Jarche 2012
    6. 6. “Collaborative means working together on projects; cooperative means taking responsibility for each others learning” Howard Rheingold 2013
    7. 7. Communities of Practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. Wenger
    8. 8. (via Jarche 2012)
    9. 9. Communities develop their practice through a variety of activities (Wenger and Trayner). Problem solving “Can we work on this design and brainstorm some ideas; I’m stuck.” Requests for information “Where can I find the code to connect to the server?” Seeking experience “Has anyone dealt with a customer in this situation?” Reusing assets “I have a proposal for a local area network I wrote for a client last year. I can send it to you and you can easily tweak it for this new client.” Coordination and synergy “Can we combine our purchases of solvent to achieve bulk discounts?” Discussing developments “What do you think of the new CAD system? Does it really help?” Documentation projects “We have faced this problem five times now. Let us write it down once and for all.” Visits “Can we come and see your after-school program? We need to establish one in our city.” Mapping knowledge and identifying gaps “Who knows what, and what are we missing? What other groups should we connect with?”

    20. 20. Tutor as Facilitator Vygotsky
    21. 21. It can happen out in public places alleyways and funny spaces underneath and in between locations where you’ve never been before. . It can happen on an airplane at 30,000 feet above the ground you’ve found the person sitting next to you has lived the life you might have. . It can happen walking down the street you meet someone you haven’t seen in ages who tells you everything before the light changes.. Mark McQuire 2012 It can happen at a party once I met a guy who told me how sub atomic particles romance with partners rooms away that made my day. . It can happen in a pub an angel at the bar sharing whisky while a stranger tells a history of the world in six glasses. . It can happen when you go to bed and in your head you find an alleyway at 30,000 feet where faster than light neutrinos are dancing the night away. . And it all makes sense. http://markmcguire.net/2012/08/18/where-learning-happens/ Where Learning Happens It can happen in mid sentence when you interrupt the program for a message from one sponsor or another.
    22. 22. Connectedness In relation to telecommunications "online" indicates a state of connectivity, while "offline" indicates a disconnected state.

    28. 28. The principal goal of education is to create men [and women] who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done - men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers. The second goal of education is to form minds which can be critical, can verify, and not accept, everything they are offered. Piaget 1970 We need to learn to take risks, to challenge and above all find fun in learning
