Using Ning with students and colleagues -- a FLC session with Laura Summers

Posted: Saturday, November 7, 2009 | Posted by Joni Dunlap | Labels:

During our Friday, November 13th, FLC session, Professor Laura Summers will share how she has used Ning, a social/professional networking tool similar to Facebook, to extend the professional community’s abilities to share need-to-know information seamlessly, foster collaborative discussions, offer advice and guidelines, increase networking among like-minded colleagues, and provide a knowledge bank of materials & technology-integrated artifacts among members for increased communication and professional development. Laura will describe how she has been using Ning successfully in three different professional learning groups for the past two years. Please join us for an informative session that is sure to get you excited about using a tool like Ning to support your work with colleagues and students.

Also, Laura contributed a chapter on her use of Ning to the 2009 CU Online Handbook -- check it out!
