Hello fellow ETTers!
I was contacted by a representative from the company named Tizmos about them sponsoring our site. Tizmos is a "visual bookmarking site dedicated to helping teachers organize lessons as well as share new ideas and resources with like-minded teachers and edtech enthusiasts as well as directly with students themselves." I personally have not used Tizmos, but know of some folks that do.
What they would like to do is pay for the subscription in exchange for a banner on the site and feedback from us about their product. No one would be required to sign-up for their service, but if you did, you would have an opportunity to discuss how they could make their site better for teachers.
I don't want to make this decision for everyone, because this is not my site, it's our site. I've put up a poll that will remain up for a week. After the end of the week, I will look at the results and get back to the folks at Tizmos with a reply.
If you would like to discuss or ask questions about what this would look like, please feel free to comment here or in the discussion started about this topic.
I've had some other ideas with regards to businesses that might want to be part of our community and will discuss them further in the discussion thread.
