  15. 15. Ideas for Using Ning • Reading Circles- teachers could assign a topic such as “coming of age” and break students into small groups. Each group can read a different work and discuss on this site via the group tool. All students could post to specific topics via the forum tool. • Lab reports- Students could discuss scientific findings and ask questions of their classmates. Diagrams could be scanned and posted as photos. • Extra curricular clubs -Clubs could communicate events and important messages to all members. The discussion forum could be used to generate new ideas. Photos and videos could be posted of recent events. The possibilities are endless!
