Cryptic Commentary: moving forward, finding the locality

During this phase of learning the new forms of communication and connection with Web 2.0, I find myself expanding and contracting, expanding and contracting. To what degree is it good to reach out? To what degree is it important to stay local? How large should the web be? Who gets to paint the web? Through what eyes is the web seen? Is it the size of a garden-spider's web, an ocean fisherman's net, a constellation of stars? I can't get the proportions right. They keep shifting. Pause to think... Seems to me there's a new definition of local. How, just how, does this get defined?

Edi, you are absolutely right. I love your comment about not getting "...so busy navigating that the students get lost." But maybe I can be a model of a captain standing at the bridge.
Thanks for the note!

Connie,
I started some of my high school student out on a closed Wiki space and then opened up for others to make comments. What it made my students realized was that there was a whole new world out there that they weren't even aware of.

They then decided that they needed to clean up some of their writing and some of their somewhat off colored comments. (Which they got docked points for!)

It was nice to see other people comment on their page and it was interesting to see their faces when their parents started making comments on their Wiki. It was great and it was an real learning experience about being exposed to the outside world.
