Unlike office buildings or universities, an online collaboration can not be seen.  The word “collaboration” may even put some people off as sounding too “brainy”.  But, as any soccer mom knows, collaboration is a tangible part of everyday life.  It is a system that brings people together to improve daily life for all.  I suppose other terms would make folks more comfortable.  Words like teamwork, partnership, group effort, association, cooperation sound softer.  But they are passive terms describing roles within an existing framework.  None capture the dynamism of complementary people working toward a common goal.  None consider either the depth and breadth required to conduct the enterprise.  None are adequate.

Wikipedia has this to say about collaboration http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collaboration

two or more people or organizations work together in an intersection of common goals — for example, an intellectual endeavor[1][2] that is creative in nature[3]—by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus. Most collaboration requires leadership, although the form of leadership can be social within a decentralized and egalitarian group.[4]In particular, teams that work collaboratively can obtain greater resources, recognition and reward when facing competition for finite resources.[5]Structured methods of collaboration encourage introspection of behavior and communication.[4] These methods specifically aim to increase the success of teams as they engage in collaborative problem solving.

Impressive!

Being both organic and dynamic, collaborations can not be grasped visualized as easily as stone and steel office buildings or university ivy-towers .  So, I offer the following simple analogy for understanding our collaboration.

  • Seattle high school junior class skips standardized test in protest 24 Apr 2015 | 2:06 pm

    By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) - All 11th grade students at one Seattle public high school skipped a standardized test tethered to federal education requirements, a protest that has spread to other secondary schools, an official said on Friday. Some Nathan Hale High School students submitted parent-signed refusal forms, while others merely skipped the Smarter Balanced Assessment tests this week, Seattle schools spokeswoman Stacy Howard said. The boycott follows a resolution by Nathan Hale teachers earlier this year against the test, aligned to the Common Core multi-state education standards in English and math. We support the family's choice." The local revolt comes amid an ongoing debate over how best to reinvigorate the nation's estimated $600 billion public school system.

  • See the Uplifting Prom Proposal a Straight Teen Made to His Gay Buddy 24 Apr 2015 | 1:23 pm

    See the Uplifting Prom Proposal a Straight Teen Made to His Gay BuddyHigh school students across the country are getting ready to break out the formal wear, brush up on the latest dance moves, and overpay for a lush limo to celebrate a teenage rite of passage: prom. While paired-off couples might be worrying about whether their corsage will clash with their outfit, gay student Anthony Martinez was bummed he’d have to attend the event stag—until his best friend, Jacob Lescenski, who is straight, stepped up to the plate. Martinez saw the banner as he headed to class at Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas on Thursday and was surprised to find himself at the receiving end of the request.


  • BYOB: It's brew your own beer at some colleges 24 Apr 2015 | 10:12 am

    In this Thursday, March 19, 2015, photo, Assistant Brewer, and senior chemistry major Stephen Moser, 23, smells freshly made beer at Innovation Brew Works lab at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in Pomona, Calif. Although the beer made on Pomona's campus is sold at the university's pub, school officials say the effort isn't about providing product for boozy frat boys. It's about responding to a booming craft-beer market by giving students the skills to compete for jobs in a rapidly expanding section of the hospitality industry. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)POMONA, Calif. (AP) — A bachelor's in beer? A master's in malt? Not quite. But these days some colleges are teaching students to make beer as part of their studies.

  • These Are the Best College Towns for Students 23 Apr 2015 | 2:45 pm

    The American Institute for Economic Research recently ranked the country’s top college towns for 2014-2015, based on student life, economic health, culture and opportunity. Ithaca, N.Y., home to Ithaca College and Cornell University tops the list, thanks to entrepreneurial activity and research and development. College towns tend to have stronger local economies than cities of a comparable size, thanks to the stable demand for real estate from students and the relatively recession-proof field of higher education.

  • Major Florida school district dumps almost all yearend testing 23 Apr 2015 | 2:15 pm

    By David Adams and Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - The Miami school district, the nation's fourth largest, said on Thursday it was eliminating most end-of-course exams, including all those for elementary school students, the latest blow to standardized testing in the state. "We have taken a responsible and logical approach to assessing students, in order to restore valuable teaching and learning time," Alberto Carvalho, the superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, said in an announcement on Facebook. The move comes amid mounting statewide pressure to roll back standardized testing in Florida public schools, as well as recent computer glitches on computerized tests. It is also puts a dent in the educational legacy of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, a possible Republican presidential candidate, who championed standardized testing while in office to grade schools and teachers based on student achievement.

  • The Closing of the Millennial Mind on Campus 23 Apr 2015 | 4:15 am

    The Closing of the Millennial Mind on CampusCompleting a college education, people have long presumed, shows that a young adult has not just mastered a particular subject but has broadened his or her intellect by exposure to many different disciplines, philosophies, and diverse approaches to both knowledge and life. Unfortunately, most of our universities and colleges end up promoting ignorance, insularity, fear, and infantilism. Rather than seek out heterodox opinions, the faculties and student bodies of these schools attempt to insulate themselves from opponents through speech codes, demands for “trigger warnings,” demagoguery and shouting down of alternate views. Oberlin College in Ohio and Georgetown University in Washington DC both had groups invite Christina Hoff Sommers, a conservative critic of the current version of feminism, to speak on their campuses.


  • Thousands of Washington state teachers strike over pay 22 Apr 2015 | 5:55 pm

    By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - Thousands of teachers across Washington state held the first in a planned series of one-day strikes on Wednesday to demand higher pay, better benefits and a reduction in class sizes, the state's largest teachers' union said. Nearly 3,000 teachers in nine school districts were taking part in the strikes, which forced the cancellation of classes in two districts and a half day at a third, said Washington Education Association spokesman Rich Wood. Wednesday's walkout was the first in a staggered series of actions by Washington state teachers, with smaller strikes planned for Friday and next week. At issue are cost-of-living raises and funding for benefits being considered by the state Legislature.
