I am curious if anyone has used ning.com or other web 2.0 to build collaboration in your building/district/site. I teach in a 5-8th building, the teachers are very isolated between wings and floors, as well we have four different lunch hours. I have been at this building 3 years and there are still teachers I don't recognize! I think ning would be an awesome way to foster more communication at our building. I am hoping to use ning this fall. I'm thinking online faculty meetings, curriculum sharing discussions, grade level topics, lesson sharing.
I am wondering if anyone has had success using social networking at your site and what worked/ didn't work.
