As I was looking at the different Nings, I noticed that this would be a great way for students to connect with each other while at home. There could be a grade level ning for students to share with other students in the district as well as across districts so they can write about what they are learning. Instead of having one pin-pal to write letters to, have a bunch that you can share information with about what learning is taking place. It could also be a way for them to learn something about others. If there was a ning set up for librarians across district, it would encourage ideas to passed from one librarian to another. It would be a simple way for new librarians to get information from experienced librarians, just as it is helpful to have a mentor when becoming a new teacher. Collaborating is always better! When I looked at the Ning for Teachers I found there were various lessons that could be searched. I'm always looking for better ways to teach my kids with a hands-on experience. This would be a great way to look instead of searching through thousands of results that pop up when you type what you are looking for into a search engine.
