Josie is mapping the location of edubloggers around the world… go add yourself (thanks to D’Arcy for the capture – one question though… can you actually have a global community of practice?).
Why can’t a CoP be global? We see each other at conferences and the like, and probably interact more with each other online than many CoPs do face-to-face…
That’s true… but aren’t we in fact distinctly local? Yes we’re distributed in terms of location but in doing this we’re perhaps more niched than we ever have been in terms of engaging with the people directly around us who are coming at stuff from all sorts of directions?
It’s an interesting though though isn’t it, that the greater breadth of our community, the more localised we might be in terms of understanding.
There is no location, Neo.
Oh trinity -gasp-
