Ning Release!

As many of you have probably heard from your teachers,  we are sending out invites to parents, staff and teens in our community to join our HCS Learning Commons Ning.  A Ning you may ask is what?  I like the dictionary meaning: To bring together like minded people who share the same passion! Our goal is to create a space for discipleship based education and collaboration. You can form your own group, join another group, share in the chat room or chat individually with another friend or you can add an event, share media and generally get acquainted. 

If you teacher has not sent you the invite,  please email one of the following people to get your invite:

Natalie Sing, and Pippa Davies at HCOS or
Paul Kelly at HCS

We ask that you read some of the social networking guidelines on our ning or learning commons interface,  so that you can help your teenagers (13 and up) if they decide to join.  Be aware that like all social networks you need to decide with your students how much time a day should be spent online, regardless of the fact that the ning is moderated. 

Please note there are several Ning tutorials on our ning site already for those of you who need extra help.  I look forward to running a webinar on Monday 22nd of October 2012 to help you figure out how the ning can work for you.  Please join me at this Blackboard Collaborate Classroom webinar using the following sign in link between 1.15 and 1.30pm.


We pray that you will be blessed by our HCS Ning,  and we look forward to collaborating with you there:) Please let me know if you have any concerns.

Pippa and the LC team.
