Collaboration Collaboration Act of working together Catalan castellers collaborate, working together with a shared goal. Collaboration (from Latin com- "with" + laborare "to labor", "to work") is the process of two or more people, entities or organizations working together to complete a task or achieve a goal.[1] Collaboration is similar to cooperation. Structured methods of collaboration encourage introspection of behavior and communication.[2] Such methods aim to increase the success of teams as they engage in collaborative problem-solving. Examples[edit] Trade[edit] Community organization: Intentional Community[edit] Organization and cooperation between community members provides economic and social benefits. Hutterite, Austria (founded 16th century)[edit] In Hutterite communities housing units are built and assigned to individual families, but belong to the colony with little personal property.

Classroom collaboration It's amazing to think that just a little over ten years ago, the Internet was a technological toddler with only the most basic of networks, a limited number of users and an offering of information that today we would call mediocre. Following its expansion into popular use in the 1990s, the Internet has had a dramatic and positive impact on culture and commerce worldwide. Education, in particular, has benefited as people have discovered the strengths and uses of the Internet as it continues to grow and develop. Laurie Wales, a Google Certified Teacher from the Catholic Schools Office in Newcastle Australia is well versed in the value that online tools can deliver in the classroom. Laurie's well-received workshop, titled "Connect - Construct - Collaborate," included an overview of a wide range of Google applications available for educators. This has the potential to reduce traditional barriers between home and the school. Classroom collaboration
Teaching the Essential Skills of the Mobile Classroom Teaching the Essential Skills of the Mobile Classroom Think back 20 years. Pay phones still worked, and only doctors carried pagers. Laptops weighed as much as bowling balls, and few of us had Internet access. In fact, much of what we now consider commonplace -- Google, email, WiFi, texting -- was not even possible. If that was 20 years ago, where are we going in the next 20? We are all going mobile! The writing slate was in use in Indian schools in the 11th century as mentioned in Alberuni's Indica (Tarikh Al-Hind), written in the early 11th century. In essence, we have always had mobile tools in the classroom, but our current devices offer significantly more capabilities while also advancing at an appreciably more rapid rate. Communication Communication has always has always been an essential skill in the classroom. Decisions, decisions . . . Not only do students need to be able to present themselves in a face-to-face setting, but also via video, audio and text. Collaboration Tuckman's stages of group development (my version for students)
36 Things Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Do What should every teacher in the 21st century know and be able to do? That’s an interesting question. After just now seeing this excellent post on, I thought I’d contribute to the conversation. I added the twist of ranking them from least complex to most complex, so novices can start at the bottom, and you veterans out there can skip right to 36. 36 Things Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Do 1. Whether you choose a text message, email, social media message, Skype session, or a Google+ Hangouts depends on who you need to communicate with and why—purpose and audience. 2.

Know what it means to be Rick Roll’d, the difference between a fail and an epic fail, why Steve is a scumbag, and who sad Keannu is. 5. Not everyone loves technology. An RT as an olive branch. 6. 7. Tone is lost when you type. 8. This is dead-simple, but you never know. 9. 10. 11. 12. 36 Things Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Do

Collaboration Tools & services Collaboration Tools & services Collaborative learning is essentially people working together to solve a problem, create a product, or derive meaning from a body of material. A central question or problem serves to organize and drive activities, and encourage application, analysis, and synthesis of course material. While the landscape of technology that can be used to support central activities of collaborative learning is vast and varied, it is often lumped together under a single label: "collaboration tools." Given this vast and distributed landscape of tools, the difficulty of finding one or a set of tools to meet your goals can be time intensive.

5 Fun and Mathematical Ways to Teach Your Child About Money 5 Fun and Mathematical Ways to Teach Your Child About Money This is a guest post by Troy Edwards who writes for the “What is Economics?” blog. For many of today’s students, having to take and master math has as much appeal as a visit to the dentist. For this reason, the savvy parent recognizes that a little “creativity” and fun can go a long way. It can be considered the equivalent of a mother administering a little honey with a spoon of medicine to make it more palatable. photo credit: ~jjjohn~ Since money is a currency of exchange that kids can understand and relate to, there are many ways to work monetary concepts into exercises, real life examples, and games to achieve educational goals. Here are a few things to consider. With this in mind, here are 5 fun and mathematical ways to teach your child about money. 1. photo credit: merfam Allow the little ones to accompany you to the next visit to your local grocers. 2.Play with coins photo credit: midnightglory 3. photo credit: Thomas Hawk 4.Add a language photo credit: bradipo 5.Be the banker

Here are eleven techniques that you can use in your classroom that will help you achieve effective group management and control. They have been adapted from an article called: "A Primer on Classroom Discipline: Principles Old and New" by Thomas R. McDaniel, Phi Delta Kappan, September 1986. 1. Be sure you have the attention of everyone in your classroom before you start your lesson. Inexperienced teachers sometimes think that by beginning their lesson, the class will settle down. The focusing technique means that you will demand their attention before you begin. A soft spoken teacher often has a calmer, quieter classroom than one with a stronger voice. 2. An effective way to marry this technique with the first one is to include time at the end of the period for students to do activities of their choosing. The teacher is more willing to wait for class attention when he knows there is extra time to meet his goals and objectives. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Make ample use of praise.

Emerging trends which are now more regular practices in a diversity of classrooms. Change takes time, especially in educational practices. And though I keep mentioning different digital tools and apps here in this space, that does not necessarily mean that educators should be using them all - not at all. As in any other context, educators know best what works well in their classrooms, they are able to choose, tweak and adapt as they best see fit. There is light and lightness in collaboration. Participate Learning is one example of how educators can collaborate and share. Creativity in the English Language Classroom Nick Peachey) is another great source of inspiration to all language teachers. (edited by Alan Maley and Nik Peachey) Personally, I offer no particular predications for 2016. There is light and lightness. CristinaSkyBox: Because There is Light in Collaboration
