AO. collaboration as synonymous with communication.

  • AO: The authors write: they are“finding the design problem through participation with the community” but it is very unclear what exactly they are doing that is “collaborative” other than interacting with those they are studying.

  • AO: The authors write that: “Our engagement with CTVC is allowing us to discover “local protocols” of collaboration and discussion. After joining these channels, we can adapt them to conduct PD activities with community members. Taking the example of the above case, we can suggest an online collaborative design workshop with CTVC members by using a Facebook event page. This approach thus enables us to appropriate PD methods according to the local context by learning to use existing ways adopted by community members to communicate and coordinate.” They seem to be using the term collaborate interchangably with “communicate” and “discuss.”
