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.

Thanks! Karen

I just started using Ning with Students. I setup a ning for our grade 12 English Honors course. The teacher wanted to have students maintain their own blogs as journals. She wanted to be able to view them all in one place. A ning site is perfect for this. As i introduced the features of the network the teacher started to realize all of the other opportunities. We are meeting next week to expand its use.
Hi Karen,
yes I do - but it is a Ning Network for several schools: eTwinning DigiSkills
In Europe there is a possibility to interact with internet on special topics
Have a look at this Ning eTwinning DigiSkills!
My greetings from Germany!

PS: I´ve got my own Ning Network Web2Class
