Has anyone used Ning, or another platform, to create a social network for their school? It was discussed at a conference I was at recently and I am working with my administration to get one started.
My plan is to start by getting teachers and staff on board - creating accounts and then posting/reading. We would add the students in the fall or winter.
If you have done this: 1) what problems have your run into? and 2)What success have you had?
If you don't have one I'd also be interested in hearing your thoughts.
