I just posted a reply to a forum discussion about possible Skypecasts about using Ning. What was funny about this is that I posted a reply regarding the possibilty of using Steve Hargadon‘s idea for the EduBloggerWorld work. Needless to say, I think I sort of confused Steve. (Steve, I’m not an idiot, really.) But this got me thinking some more… there are so many networks, I am getting confused myself sometimes. No wonder our teachers are dizzy about technology… their heads are spinning.
Anyways, I like the simplicity of this Ning network… Education.ning.com. All education, all the time. Same education channel, same educational time. It seems that this might be the “One Ning To Rule Them All”. Well, at least for education.
So where do you start teachers new to social networking? Facebook (ah!), MySpace (ah! ah!) or with one where they know they’ll be getting into it with fellow teachers? I vote for the latter.
