Autumm Caines reflection, Public Space vs Wild Space: A #clmooc Reflection Without Much Background, on the sixth and final #CLMOOC Make Cycle (Geolocate Your Space) explored the wild and not-so-much spaces on the world wide web. She notes that in the best public spaces (such as CLMOOC), community members work together to make the space (and the world) a better place. I love how she reflected on the fact that wild places (as in the Wild West) without rules or regulation can also be important and valuable.
Wendy Taleo’s post, “Where Are You From, discusses our need to orient ourselves whenever we embark on something new. She points out that those who cannot locate themselves on this “new” map will often disappear entirely. This so true for our classrooms as well as the other communities which we create and join. Such an interesting idea that I am sure I will continue to contemplate.
I love Kevin Hodgson’s contributions to this make cycle, especially his video tour of the collaborative map which provides a lovely visual of our parks and spaces. You will also want to visit the open map (used to illustrate this post) of the CLMOOC participants).
