The Three Magic C's : Collaboration, Communication, Connection

Everyweek in our itec-335 class we are required to post a blog and comment on @ least 3 other people's blog posts and we all are required to have a circle of friends......

This is collaboration and in the 21st century, technology has aided it.

Building relationships and connections with others arises from efficient communication. The use of Blog Posts, video conferences, Facebook, twitter, Smartphone 3G devices such as blackberry, iphone, Second life, Podcasts all help to facilitate this collaboration amonsgt people and companies.

These tools are out there to help us work as a team, facilitate our learning and improve our level of communication between individuals. There are advantages such as improving learning skill, improving communication skill and disadvantages such as distractions and giving out personal information online. But we must utilize these tools and try to use them for the right purposes at all times especially in environment we find ourselves in.

Today's world is practically moving at a fast pace and quite a large number of people seem to be on the ride. Would you like to be left behind?

  1. I agree, I think we've grown so accustomed to these collaboration tools that we don't know what to do without them. The question now isn't whether or not we collaborate, it's how much we do and how much is too much.

  2. I agree with you that there are many technologies out there to help us build collaboration with each other. The only setback I see is that the degree of knowledge that people have about different technologies might pose a problem, when actually trying to collaborate.
