Sharing vs Collaboration

Want to know the difference between sharing and collaboration? Such a simple thing really.

Here is a math activity I have used for a while. It is something you can use to teach area and is more engaging than a textbook. It is higher order (a little) in that the students must create a floor plan for a house for less than $200 000.

If you were to look at it here, you would just view it and use it, it is an example of sharing.

Now take a look at this link. Add to the activity, improve it, make it more higher order. We all benefit. Go nuts, google docs and collaboration rule!
