Purposeful Collaboration

I collaborate virtually on something with someone every single day. Some recent examples include:

  • sharing a grocery list with my husband through Google Keep
  • planning an anniversary party for our parents with my siblings via group text messages
  • Scheduling school visits with teachers and administrators through a shared Google Sheet
  • Working on a writing project with a colleague using shared Google Docs
  • Collaborating with other eLearning peers in a Slack community
  • Reviewing a Policy and Procedure guide I wrote with my team via Join.Me
  • Working on a procedural table with colleagues through OneDrive
  • Having a virtual meeting to discuss a current project with district leaders in another state using Google Hangouts
  • Attending a board meeting with people in Lima, Peru from my house in Indiana via Skype.
  • Email (obviously, too many examples to discuss)
  • Messaging with my PLN via LinkedIn and Twitter to grow professionally together.

 

We live in an age of mass collaboration, and the tools provided make it easier than ever. I don’t have a favorite platform, as you can probably tell I choose the one that best meets the needs of the task. What are some of your favorite ways to collaborate?
