In linguistics, a co-construction is a grammatical or semantic entity which has been uttered by more than one speaker.[1][2] It is a technical term for the notion of one person finishing another person's thought. For example:
Person A: Excuse me, you could direct me to the, um…Person B: Bathroom?Person A: Yes, thank you.
In learning, co-construction is a distinctive approach, where the emphasis is on collaborative, or partnership working. Creative Partnerships refer to 'Co-construction of learning' as the partnership between teaching staff, pupils and creative professionals to develop and deliver creative learning in schools.[3]

'Co-construction of learning' deepens relationships and understanding between all learning partners and can lead to School Improvement.[4] Co-construction of learning is referred to in Primary and Secondary Schools and other learning settings in the UK, and generally refers to collaboration in learning beyond delivery of learning or projects, for example in Curriculum co-construction.[5] Wikipedia could also be considered a form of 'co-construction of learning.'[6]
