“A collaborative perspective has the individual taking responsibility for constructing meaning while including the participation of others in confirming worthwhile knowledge. Meaningfulness and worthwhileness reflect the cognitive and social perspectives of an educational experience. Therefore, meaning and knowledge are both personally and socially constructed. This balanced integration of cognitive and collaborative learning processes, therefore, defines learning outcomes as both personally meaningful and socially worthwhile.” (Garrison, 1997, p. 18)

“A superb machine in an amazing place doing everything possible to reveal the mysteries and secrets of our solar system… This morning, a lone explorer, a machine made by humankind, finished its mission 900 million miles away. To the very end, the spacecraft did everything we asked. We believe we got every last second of data. We have indeed accomplished everything we set out to do.” ~ Earl Maize, Cassini project manager, referencing the September 15th demise of the Cassini spacecraft.
