In response to a DiigoNotes blog entry I wrote that cites the results of online learning research, specifically commentary on the study making the following assertion:

“The technology will be used to create learning communities among students in new ways,” Mr. Regier said. “People are correct when they say online education will take things out the classroom. But they are wrong, I think, when they assume it will make learning an independent, personal activity. Learning has to occur in a community.”

I was intrigued by a response from one of my colleagues–Joy Rousseau, Arp ISD–in Texas. She wrote the following:

“I agree that while learning will take place in a community. It is the community, however, that will change. It very well may become (I am almost sure) a distributed community of learners instead of a community in proximity.

I love this perspective…”While learning will take place in a community, it may very well become a distributed community of learners instead of a community in proximity.”

What do you think?
