N = Networking With Ning #GETABC

N is for Networking With Ning

(GTG's #GETABC Series = Green, Education, & Tech*)

Networking via the biggest world-wide network (that's the Internet, to you and me), gets easier all the time.  Of course, as it gets easier to make connections, it's more and more mind-blowing how many choices you actually have.

To get you on the right track, here are a few resources.
"Ning" is a pretty popular networking avenue.  It helps to simplify your networking life, bringing you more and more to the people to whom you want to be connected.  Ning serves as a platform to create or join a social network based on your passions.

A huge Ning community for educators is The Educator's PLN:  A Personal Learning Network for Educators.

A Google search of "" and "Environment" gives you a good 6+ million hits.

Plus here's a few more on the eco-theme:
Incredibly Green
Green & Clean Mom
Green Guardians
Pursuit of a Green Planet

And another one for education: 
Transforming Education for the 21st Century

(Note:  The only Ning community I'm a member of is the above mentionioned Educator's PLN, so I cannot speak on any of these other ones.  But, find your passion, align it with Ning, and your networking life will take on a life of its own.)

Note:  In an attempt to meld my pursuits of green, education, and technology, "GET" and this ABC series did my twitter thread #GETABC.  To see the inception of #GETABC and give yourself a tidbit of background, go to GTG's True Confessions & Whirling Dervishes.
