1. Create your student network, if you don't already have one 2. Go to http://help.ning.com/?page_id=27 3. Use the subject line: "Ad Removal Request for grades 7 - 12 Education Network" 4. Put in your network ID at the beginning of the "Describe your issue" box, then just give a one-sentence description of your network usage. For example, you could put: "flatclassroomproject.ning.com - a global collaborative project founded by Vicki Davis (Westwood Schools, USA) and Julie Lindsay (Qatar Academy, Qatar) in 2006 to use Web 2.0 tools to facilitate communication, interaction and collaboration between students and teachers from all participating classrooms." 5. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if your network isn't ad-free within 72 hours (let's just say three *work* days!). [This is an update as of 1/18/08.] 6. Join the Ning in Education community to get help, hints, and tips for using Ning in educational settings 7. Consider thanking Ning by placing a "Ning in Education" badge on your frontpage by following the link on the right side of that network that says "Get a Ning in Education Badge!" You can then add the HTML code into a text box on your network. Ad Free Ning
