Co-creation is about the ways we come together in social spaces to create meaning. It’s a core Social Age process and we can see it everywhere.
Collaborative technology enables us to co-create across wider spaces in synchronous, asynchronous and cross-boundary ways. It allows us to form and grow communities and benefit from their sense-making functions. We achieve more together than we ever can alone.
Social learning spaces do not just bring us together to share what we have learnt, they bring us together to write a story together.
To help understand the co-creative process, we’ll explore seven elements, seven ways that we use our social spaces to create meaning: building knowledge through iteration and reflection in a community through ‘refinement‘, ‘shared value‘, ‘editing‘, ‘reflection‘, ‘challenge‘, ‘tempo‘ and ‘shared vision‘.
