Getting Items from the Ning Tags: Ning

Now that the Ning has officially been archived, some of you have been asking about how to get information and items from the archived site. Here is the information from Nedra and Vicky about how to go about doing that.

Hopefully it will answer all of your questions!

 

I have grabbed the HTML files from the forum (as of July 4th or 5th) and have them up in Google Drive. You can get to them at tiny.cc/elemtechteachers - this is the HTML only and you have to use the forward & back arrows to get back to the message list (the Forum link at the top - well sort of at the top) links to this site and not the forum files in Google Drive.

This doesn't include attachments on posts or images in posts or blog posts or images from the site BUT I have been capturing some of this and also putting it up in Google Drive. You can see what I have so far at https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B9SpIwhzRZ4oblVVYmhDWXRoVlU... - I'm only up to page 13 of the board & there's over 200 pages of posts so probably won't get to everything. If you would like to help add attachments and/or images to this, I can add you as an editor rather than just a viewer - just send an email at visionsbyvicky@gmail.com - you'll need to let me know your gmail (or Google Apps email) so I can share with that account.

Please let her know if you'd like to help Vicky out!

Tizmos Tags: Tizmos funding sponsorship bookmarking

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.

A Few Housekeeping Details Tags: housekeeping spruz ning transfer

Hello everyone. I know that this is a bit different than the Ning, but there are a few reasons I picked this particular site. Many of you already found the photo and video sharing links, but notice that there is also a place to share actual files and links. We really need to start using the links to share out sites because poor Traci was already flagged as a spammer for sharing links in here. The easiest way to solve it so far is to add the link on the Links page and then reference it here in the discussions.

I hate to bring up the money issue, but it does cost a bit to run this site. There have already been some very generous donations, but all we need is $1 from almost every member to pay for a full year. I'd love to get enough to pay for three years because we can get it at a much reduced rate.

I hope that you are able to acclimate yourself to the new surroundings and continue to bring rich discussions, assistance, and fun to our new home and your classrooms!
