I have been reading so many of your blogs and they are all so good. You all seem to be experienced journalists. You can go on and on weaving a story about what you are learning and how it affects you. I have never journalled. I have trouble just spilling what is in my brain onto a screen or paper for that matter. I envy you. I just finished reading Sarah blog about community and I so agree with her. She talks about having difficulty connecting and creating community. I too have been experiencing the same thing. A disconnect. Just as the article How to Foster and Sustain Engagement in Virtual Communities it seems a lot of people are having trouble fostering a sense of community-belonging. I love face-to-face. Collaborating one on one in person. I just finished working today with a teacher who is teaching a triple grade – God Bless her. We worked out her year plan and her next year plan as well as created units that will take her to the beginning of Jan. It was such a great experience and she agreed. I can’t imagine this having happen via social media or through a blog or other 2.0 tools (see I don’t even know most of them). I love learning about all this but I still think there is a definite need to continue the face to face. What do you think. A happy medium or are we heading to living in a faceless society?
