    1. These are just two of many things that come up, and I don’t really have a great answer to these questions. In most cases I’d say it makes sense for these to remain two conceptually distinct projects, except for the big looming issue which is with the open web shrinking it might helpful for these communities to join common cause and solve some of the problems that have plagued both blogging and wiki in their attempt to compete with proprietary platforms.

    1. Enable Frictionless Collaboration CucumberStudio empowers the whole team to read and refine executable specifications without needing technical tools. Business and technology teams can collaborate on acceptance criteria and bridge their gap.
    1. a user can download his or her own data

      In a platform where one of the main values is collaboration, how important is it that these platforms guarantee that the user will be able to backup his/her data in case he/she wants (or is forced to) move out? Shouldn't this platforms also guarantee that one would be able to download ALL public data (or data the specific user has access to) to make sure he/she will be able to recreate the whole thing if he/she wants (or is forced) to?

    1. Collaboration is not consensus When collaborating it is always important to stay above radar and work transparently, but collaboration is not consensus. You don't need to ask people for their input, and they shouldn't ask you "Why didn't you ask me?" You don't have to wait for people to provide input, if you did ask them. We believe in permissionless innovation- you don't need to involve people but everyone can contribute. This is core to how we iterate, since we want smaller teams moving quickly rather than large teams achieving consensus slowly.
    2. No need to brainstorm, wait for consensus, or do with two what you can do yourself.
    1. As Framebench, we set out to build a really cool and fast visual collaboration platform which, over the past 3 years, enabled more than a 1000 companies to annotate and communicate on visual files in real time.

    1. Does Google Sheets work as a collaborative to do app? I'd say it's best as a personal to do list, but you can definitely share it like you would any other spreadsheet and turn it into a team app. Because of the detailed revision history, you don't have to worry about losing something because a coworker accidentally changed it.

    1. Indeed a seamless integration of web, email, newsgroup and a searchable document database are the components that make a formidable groupware application.

      20 years on, folks still struggle to grasp the utility of collaboration. Cobbling together one's own system is easy, but as Jon pointed out in his article on the weblog as project management tool - in the end the tools don't matter, what does is that someone has to take the initiative to create/maintain the project web (or champion its use among team members).

    1. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was one example, with Pratchett pointing out the help provided by the Wellcome Trust’s Public Engagement Fund. The trust is a foundation in England that gives grants to projects in film, TV and video games that have a biological or neurological component. Part of the grant process also comes with support from consultants, who work with recipients. For Hellblade, that meant replicating Senua’s psychosis in a convincing and sensitive way, and so University of Cambridge’s Professor Paul Fletcher became integral to the game’s development.

      I didn't play Senua's Sacrifice personally, I saw a let's play of it on YouTube. And it was amazing. It makes so much sense now that there was such a great collaboration between the company, Trust fund, Uni and writer(s) - because the psychosis reflected in the game that you experience through Senua's perspective WAS really well done, and done with care/sensitivity. It also is the way mental illnesses should be done in games from now on.

    1. humanities scholars have collaborated with computer scientists to build tools to facilitate these essential functions of the humanities in new ways.

      I believe that the collaboration between subjects is necessary to understand ideas and theories in a more holistic way. To successfully write a scientific journal on a new medical accomplishment one must understand how to use language, grammar, and vocabulary. To paint a world renowned artwork masterpiece, one must understand the mathematics of symmetry, spacing, and measurements. It seems only natural to me that the humanities partner with all disciplines to convey its topics and research, and computer science is one such discipline that makes the humanities more applicable and accessible by researchers and public alike.

    1. keep accessibility top of mind

      I'm not even really sure what this entails. Are we saying "don't even bother thinking about creating an open textbook until you're a master of UDL." Seems like a bit of a barrier to entry/participation.

      Might be a more effective carrot than a stick. Something like, "hey, there are people here who speak UDL, so if you're a subject matter expert or a pedagogy person maybe it makes sense to team up." So far I'm not hearing so much of that at Rebus. I'm hearing more "these are our priorities and they should be yours too."

    1. Adapt or remix OERs with your students.

      Begin by having them respond to the readings and mind the gaps. Also maybe by having them vote on the effectiveness of readings, relevance to course material, ease of understanding, etc.

    1. free of charge and free of licensing restrictions

      Are there any examples currently where something is not free of charge but is free of licensing restrictions?

    1. L’intention d’une approche d’enseignement à travers un réseau social virtuel est de transformer une activité individuelle en une activité sociale. Tout le monde a bien compris combien les étudiants d’aujourd’hui ont besoin d’interactions et par voie de conséquence, l’offre d’outils de collaboration en ligne se diversifie. A tel point qu’il devient compliqué d’en évaluer chaque fonction et d’en mesurer la valeur pédagogique. Concernant la curation et  l’annotation, des enseignants du cégep Vanier, soutenus par la VTÉ, ont tenté d’y voir plus clair.

    1. This site includes links to brief discussions of more than 100 learning theories, some of which relate to technology enhanced learning. Those include gamification and online collaborative learning among others. Usability is adequate and this is sufficient for an introduction to the theories though not necessarily a nuanced understanding. rating 4/5

    1. they meet at their concept and terminology interface and work out little shifts in meaning and use which each can find digestible in his system, and which permit quite precise definitions in each system of the terms and concepts in the others.

      This seems to be what topic mapping and merging is about.

    1. 7. Team Cooperation

      The below reminds me of working in Google Docs, which can indeed be a delightful site for collaboration.

      Still--and perhaps I've just been monastic in my stance while reading Engelbart--I wonder about the power of isolated individual deliberation ahead of or in some other less immediate relation to the cooperation described here.

    1. A group of local or global learners who reach a common outcome while connecting and learning online

      It is important to collaborate with other people so that we can get a better understanding of other opinions and views. We can share knowledge base by collaborating and we can even develop an even better understanding of ideas just by explaining our views to other people.

    1. Web annotation, for example, is catching on as a new mode of collaboration, peer review, and other research functions.

      And the combination of community feedback on preprints with traditional and post-publication peer review through collaborative annotation is catching on with a variety of publishers. See InReview by BMC and ResearchSquare. Also COS preprint servers such as SocArXiv and Psyarxiv.

    1. That’s true not just within the classroom environment, but in the web of interactions students experience

      Subtle call for more cross-campus collaborations between faculty and administration. A productive form of shared governance.

    1. Seneca does not just give him advice and comment on a few great principles of conduct for his benefit. Through those written lessons, Seneca continues to exercise himself; according to two principles that he often invokes; it is necessary to train oneself all one’s life, and one always needs the help of others in the soul’s labor upon itself.

      So, we, too, are exercising ourselves through these readings and annotations -- we are corresponding and collaborating.

    1. It isn't rocket science, but as Jon indicates, it's incredibly powerful.

      I use my personal website with several levels of taxonomy for tagging and categorizing a variety of things for later search and research.

      Much like the example of the Public Radio International producer, I've created what I call a "faux-cast" because I tag everything I listen to online and save it to my website including the appropriate <audio> link to the.mp3 file so that anyone who wants to follow the feed of my listens can have a playlist of all the podcast and internet-related audio I'm listening to.

      A visual version of my "listened to" tags can be found at https://boffosocko.com/kind/listen/ with the RSS feed at https://boffosocko.com/kind/listen/feed/

    1. In the most physically salient and concrete example, ‘spatial boundaries’ [11] at work—such as office or cubicle walls—are being removed to create open ‘unbounded’ offices in order to stimulate greater collaboration and collective intelligence. Does it work?

      This type of office plan saves money. Small start ups have this type of office because it is cheaper and more flexible for a growing company. Increases collaboration? Most of our jobs are not collaborative.

    1. The large majority of researchers accepted my invitation to connectwith practitioners.

      Large majority of researchers are willing to have a chat with a practitioner, without getting paid. Knowing the researcher directly/indirectly helps, no A/B test

    1. most importantly, however, when the group has real synergy, it will by far exceed the best individual performance. Synergy is best thought of as members of the same team feeding off one another in positive ways; as result the "whole" becomes better than "the sum of the parts". Collaboration can actually raise the "group IQ" – i.e. the sum total of the best talents of each member on the team.

      Synergy.

    1. In effective collaboration, all people involved use their emotional intelligence well to balance emotional needs with their thinking, build authentic relationships and make good quality decisions on behalf of the organisation. Whether working with others one-to-one, in small groups or large teams, there is exemplary communication with empathy that engages hearts and minds.  This occurs at all levels of the organisation.

      How emotional intelligence affects collaboration.

    1. t turns out emotional intelligence in a group setting accelerates the group's development. Team members need EI on an individual level. And when we work together with EI, it's fascinating to see what happens. Studies are finding that collaboration among those with high emotional intelligence creates outcomes that exceed the sum of their individual talents. Shared emotional intelligence not only improves work processes, it improves the work product!

      Emotional intelligence helps increase collaboration.

    1. Yammer is Web 2.0 software which integrates with Microsoft 360 and allows users to communicate together and across the organization. It essentially functions as social networking software for corporations with the ability to collaborate on projects, maintain task lists, store files, documents and pictures all within a private enterprise network. In addition Yammer allows for the sharing of feedback and the management of group projects. Yammer is freemium software with a variety of custom add-ons. Licenses are currently issued for all learner participants and at this time no custom add-ons are necessary.

    1. The Loom integration for Slack; this brings video into Slack and enhances collaboration; I'm bookmarking this because it would definitely be something I would bring up in a paper on Slack (4/5)

    1. One teacher's experience using slack, referencing what things were like before using it and after; contains many ideas on how about how to maximize Slack (3/5)

    1. Facebook Workplace is a direct competitor to Slack; this is a thoughtful exploration of experiences using both; if I decide to include any mention of Facebook, this would be a good springboard to more research (3/5)

      Note: in this scenario both are discussed as business tools not in education but other articles I've found show clear parallels

    1. To cultivate such a mind, he says, we need an education that features “exploration, challenging problems, and the tolerance, if not active encouragement, of productive mistakes.

      I think we do a really good job doing this. Do you agree? Why or why not?

    2. Assume shared responsibility for collaborative work, and value the individual contributions made by each team member

      Sometimes group projects are difficult to implement. How can teachers make sure the work load is equally distributed?

    3. Generally, collaboration has been accepted as a skill that’s essential to achieve meaningful and effective results. In the past decade, however, it has become increasingly clear that collaboration is not only important but necessary for students and employees, due to globalization and the rise of technology.

      Name 2-3 examples of how you give students the opportunity to collaborate.

    1. Malaysia cannot build smart cities on its own. Its partnership with Alibaba shows how collaboration can drive technological advancement forward. Data democratisation should help speed up development through internal collaboration.

      Malaysia

    1. Many tasks worth completing require cooperation –yet crowdsourcing has largely focused on independent work. Distributed teams have always facedchallenges in cultural differences and coordination[60], but crowd collaboration now must createrapport over much shorter timescales(e.g., one hour) and possibly wider culturalor socioeconomic gaps

      In Kittur's example, synchronous collaboration describes a temporal aspect (timescale and tempo of the work) related to how the collaboration is structured or not.

      "Short periods of intense crowd collaboration call for fast teambuilding and may require the automatic assignment of group members to maximize collective intelligence."

    2. Finally, it will be amajor research undertaking to invent and describe the tasks and techniques that succeed with synchronous collaboration

      Could this be a theme of the SBTF time study?

    1. RISTEK says it wants to promote research collaborations

      Kalau kolaborasi yang ingin ditonjolkan, maka mau tidak mau regulasi tentang penelitian perlu segera dirumuskan. jangan sampai artikel ini terulang, juga artikel yang ini.

    1. where there’s collaboration, where there are pages for a lot of people who are discussing and editing each other and calling each other out and correcting and learning from each other — that’s what I think the open internet is.
    2. It creates more of a community because you get closer to someone once you’ve spent a solid 24 hours working with them. It’s definitely experience to be had.

      1. emphasis on partnership and collaboration
      2. technologies influencing client business decisions
    1. Thus mass collaboration is more refined and complex in its process and production on the level of collective engagement.
    1. could both study and create “non-print,” “electronic,” and “visual” texts

      Perhaps because I studied Calkins and Atwell, with an emphasis in the work of James Moffett, a transition through workshop to applying technology was easier than for those who had not, and still have not, experienced the personal and individual nature of a writer. The emphasis is on the writer as a writer.

    1. Multimedia portfolios of student work

      Profile pages of annotation are a kind of this portfolio or a contribution.

    2. review and critique each other’s work.

      This is the process of replying to annotations. But annotation can also be leveraged for peer review of student writing.

    3. working with members of the community

      Public annotation.

    4. holding themselves accountable

      Can annotation portfolios/profile be leveraged to this end? Students have an activity page that represents their engagement with reading and with each other. Maybe ask students to reflect on their contributions.

    5. build relationships through mechanisms

      Annotation as one such mechanism: learning, reading in community.

    6. egularly working on teams

      Social reading makes reading a team sport!

    7. Lots of talking and listening; a constant exchange of ideas

      Live and asynchronously using collaborative annotation.

    8. Inter- and intra-personal skills. Character and culture are important values that are emphasized as much as academic subjects

      A student's "social reading" profile provides a window not only into how they interact with text (comprehensively, critically?) but also into how they interact with their classmates (respectfully? discursively?).

    9. listen well—to be a good “critical friend.”

      Read classmate's annotations, respond appropriately: respectful, challenging...

    10. learn as much from their peers as from their teachers or a textbook

      Or combing all three in a single conversation...

    11. EVIDENCE OF THINKING, NOT JUST GROUP WORK

      Students working collaboratively through the meaning of a text in annotation, asking questions, answering others, building off each other's comments and knowledge.

    1. The transformative view is that learning is a social process, with students and teachers working in partnership with each other and with experts beyond school, supported by digital technologies. In the transformative view, collaboration, creativity, innovation, entrepreneurial know-how, and ethical citizenship infuse teaching and learning. Students and teachers co-design their work. The learning environment, which extends beyond the classroom, is purposefully designed for students to think, research, analyze, develop and improve their ideas, and demonstrate deep understanding through the work they produce

    1. I have a bunch of junk tags from when I thought tags were separated by spaces; they keep popping up in the autocomplete list -- at the top, no less.

      Sort autocomplete by most-used?

      let me delete tags? (maybe I haven't looked hard enough?)

    1. Collaboration is the social process that supports learners' development of capabilities in which they learn to do without assistance things that they could initially do only with assistance. If learning really is a social process, then collaboration is required. The assistance that learners require may be provided by experts such as teachers and by peers, who collectively have expertise distributed among them.

      Student collaboration is the key of learning.
