Conscious cultivation of networking allows one to manage a broader expanse of resources, feedback loops and personal contacts with those who share common values and interests. The structures of networking are evolving at such a rapid pace that no one person can track and utilize them all. However several researchers and authors provide menus of opportunities for educators who wish to avail themselves of the emerging technologies and the potentials they offer for participating in the sciences, learning and cultural exchanges around the globe. In addition to global networking, there are models for creating exchanges within a faculty or organization or small community that enhance personal and communal growth. In the new ‘economy of attention’ we need efficient, self chosen networks to focus our learning and to insulate us from the deluge of unsolicited attention getters. Join us in identifying and sharing truly innovative networks in support of a better education for our students and a healthier, more peaceful world culture.
