Abstract

The evolving community of practice among rural K-12 teachers in Rural Oklahoma is experiencing a radical transformation from conventional ideas of Knowledge Sharing and Knowledge Discovery. In changing situations of knowledge acquisition and knowledge sharing the computational demands of these societies are changing as well. These new technologies are redefining what it means to be “literate” or “an educated citizen”. Support for virtual communities of practice not been sufficiently responsive to the needs of the Rural K-12 teachers in Western Oklahoma. Computational Media is dramatically transforming the basic patterns of communication and knowledge interchange in society and this paper explores some of that transformation.
