Have you heard of Ning? Do you use Ning? Maybe the question should be… What is Ning? It could be Myspace, Facebook, or your own social network hub. Now I am not advertising for Ning because Ning does cost a monthly fee. I am just simply stating the benefits of it and how it could be used for schools and their classrooms. Take for example this website: http://tech-in-ed.ning.com/ It has to deal with Education Technology and it is its own little portal. You have a profile, a community, message board, news feed and you are allowed to post pictures, videos and more importantly… discussions!
Ning is a great tool for schools to use and give each class an individual website. Classroom discussions can get posted, homework and so much more. There is a fee like I said, but it is very small if used by a whole school. If you are using Ning at your school already, please let me know and I will mention it on this site!
