Topic 3 is as the title indicates on collaborative learning, and in order to achieve the goal of online collaboration, we received quite some readings. In the group we are all familiar with reading, though for us (at least for me) the amount this time and the composition was a bit too philosophical and instead of summarizing the articles and presenting this we decided for a new a different approach. What we want to do is to show how an online collaborative work can be achieved, starting here….
How do we work cooperative or collaborative? Whats the difference? Well first tried to define the words, both has to do with work, though cooperative is to work with (or perform together) with a sense of “if I help you, you help me”. That is you work on a selfish yet common goal, and each one owns his/her contribution. Working collaborative is to work alongside, but here the goal is shared so is the ownership.
I choose to illustrate this by this picture:
