What happens to teachers once learning escapes the four walls?

I just found this amazing article, "World Without Wall: Learning Well With Others" from Edutopia http://tinyurl.com/6y645y.  The article blew me away with how dramatic our mindset shift as teachers must be to really take advantage of technology.  The articles states, "The Collaboration Age is about learning with a decidedly different group of "others," people whom we may not know and may never meet, but who share our passions and interests and are willing to invest in exploring them together."  I am doing this with my own professional development as a member of Twitter and as a subscriber of multiple blogs and podcasts.  How do I teach my students to become this type of learner.  What implications does that hold for me as there teacher.  If I encourage them to learn outside of the walls, will they return?
