Nice blog post today by Alastair Creelman on collaboration. He begins by arguing that ‘Learning involves collaboration and interaction…’ He points to a guide that has been published, which describes the following facets of collaboration:

  • Collaborative writing
  • Shared workspace
  • Curate
  • Plan
  • News gathering
  • Screencasting
  • Network
  • E-meetings
  • Research

The guide describes tools that can be used to enable each of these; for example Google Drive for collaborative writing or Twitter for networking. A very useful and practical guide!
