Collaboration Fluency

This is a great video from the team at Global Digital Foundation.  According to their website, “The Global Digital Citizen Foundation is a non profit organization creating exceptional resources for educators and dedicated to cultivating responsible, ethical, global citizens for a digital world—learners who strive together to solve problems that matter to create a bright future for all.” It is definitely worth the look.

Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate – The Five E’s
This is a big topic in the Collaboration Fluency Spectrum.  There are a plethora of resources out there that detail the Five E’s, but I’ve found that the “Collaboration Fluency Quickstart Skills Guide” is a great all-in-one, for lack of a better word, quickstart to what it’s all about.  The challenge is you have to register on the site and sometimes you don’t want the stuff that comes along with giving out your email address.  Or you can click here to download it directly.

Sir Ken Robinson
Again, it’s just my opinion, but there are not enough adjectives to describe the impact Ken Robinson has made, not only in my life, but in our lives as educators.   He has a video on Collaboration in the 21st Century that goes a little off topic at times, but definitely addresses our discussion on Collaboration Fluency.
