In October of 2007, SEEDLINGS, Alice Barr, Bob Sprankle and Cheryl Oakes created a keynote for the K12onlineconference.org . As a result our NING was a gathering space to introduce people to a social network. Now in June 2010, 456 of you are members of a wonderful Personal Learning Network. We did flatten the walls of our learning spaces! In 2007, our purpose was to find a virtual space where we could connect, create, publish and collaborate! We are moving beyond NING and over to FACEBOOK. We hope you will join us here. In 2010 our purpose on FACEBOOK, to continue the conversations, connections and collaboration. Join us, please.
We were joined by Emily Hunt of Common Sense Media. There are so many great sections to the web site, including tailoring the material so that a child can use it appropriately. You really have to listen to the show to hear about all of the tools. They cover social networking, Facebook, games, books, cell phone use, TV, and so much more. Common Sense media also has a You Tube Channel. What great resources for parents, students and educators. Thanks Emily, for sharing this wealth of material!
