I have a great ning website for my students. I am a 1/2 time teacher, so I share the site with another teacher. We have both been posting on our blog. However, yesterday it started NOT showing my posts...only parents and my partner teacher. I checked and they can't see it with another log in, posts are marked for my friends and everyone is "my friend" on the site. They are all in the archive...but they do not show up when I post them! Any ideas?????


Software Policy Question for EVERYONE

Posted on October 8, 2007 at 7:22pm 0 Comments

I am just curious what your district's software policy is, regarding the ability for a teacher to bring in his/her own legal software and downloading freeware or shareware programs for use in the classroom. We were told today that we must have all software (freeware, shareware personal, school…

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. (I've also sent this out on other Ning networks you may be a part of.) My name is Alyshia Olsen; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham, MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. Since you are in the 'connecting content and technology' group, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2009, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on You can find us at . We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets at many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out, anything you like!

Regarding your IC issues, I have been administrating it for over 2 years now. I also have used it as a teacher along with trainning parents on the portal features. Let me know if I can help!

I have had the website opened for our teachers to do exactly what you are talking about trying with your first graders. I had one teacher try to tell me it was just for teachers to network. I said why can't students network too? When you create your own community, restrictions are as tight or not tight depending on your personal feelings and choice. It can be very powerful with teachers and students collaborating and conducting projects together!
