The distance between our campus buildings' top floors and the flight path to our small municipal airport is minimal (though apparently meeting FAA regulations!) ..but the vantage points offer a unique view, especially during season with the increased air traffic.

Air travel is but one of the ways to bridge large spans of geographical distance. Today's networking opportunities provide a wealth of valuable connectors, forming communities that are amazingly genuine and substantial. The infrastructure is there - it still requires the need for relationships and bonds to be created. My own Personal Learning Network (PLN) has led me to a variety of adventures through Twitter, Plurk, Facebook, Nings, Discovery Education Network, blogs, wikis, Flickr, and more (just applied to be a virtual participant in February 2010's Flat Classroom Conference in Mumbai, India) - with considerable learning, reflection, and friendship along the way. It has been an unbelievable journey thus far...and I look forward to additional flights, both virtual and real, in the future! Lorenzo Walker campus, Naples, FL
