The fuzzy math of collaboration
Posted March 8, 2017on:
Many years ago, I used to tease student teachers into thinking more deeply about the differences between cooperation and collaboration. I would say:
- Cooperation is 1+1=2
- Collaboration is 1+1=3
They would eventually figure out some elements of what John Spencer distilled recently.
But the more direct answer to my riddle is in this tweet.
The result of cooperation is often the sum of its parts. The result of collaboration is a new birth.
