The Collaborator vs The Isolator

I was jotting down a couple of thoughts around different criteria of educators that are collaborators and those that are isolators. It can be a real challenge to move educators towards being collaborators, rather than isolators.

    Quentin, that is a brilliant diagram and very, very accurate. However, the isolator would never see themselves in that diagram even though their practices say otherwise – another reason it is very hard to move from one stage to the other.

    First, an apology for the previous comment. Something went awry.

    The dichotomy is splendid, and I think the elements are right on. However, the point I want to make is that I don’t believe that Venn diagrams are the best way to illustrate the opposition. A continuum would be more accurate, for one is never all collaborator or all isolator.

    Hi Graham,

    I agree – it would be difficult for an isolator to self-identify with their practices.

    Hi Francois,

    I will have to investigate the idea of continuum as my visualization. My intent was comparison, but it would be interesting to look at the two with stages that illustrate the movement up and down a continuum.

    Wow, this certainly makes one think. I’m going to put a link on my site. Thanks for sharing.
