Think Link

Picking up from yesterday's thinking about links and why it's important to 'teach links', here's a brief talk by Jay Rosen on the 'ethic of the link' and the meaning of the Web:

I'm still working this stuff out in my mind, but I would love to hear what you all have to say about it.


  1. These are great posts! I have always seen linking as a way to substantiate claims, but even more importantly, to show a synthesis of ideas. Combining thoughts from several others with my own allows me to formulate my questions and maybe even solve some problems. Something I've been trying to help my kids understand is that although I am their teacher, I do not have all the answers, and that I don't expect them to either. However, I show them that if we can combine forces by linking to people around the world, we might be able to get closer (and maybe even create an inclusive resource for others who have similar questions).

  2. Thank you for posting this video... I watch it in its entirety...
    I stumbled upon your site as I was searching for teaching/teacher blogs.
    I started blogging this spring and it has opened up a wonderful world of writing, reading and photography. I posted my 100th today...
    ...the world has come to my back door!
    all the best, Maria
