Fall 2008 Newsletter

Please Participate In Our Survey

We are starting the new school year with a request for all our patrons and visitors to fill out our Fall 2008 Survey at survey link.

With this survey, we are attempting to identify identify current issues in education and how K12IRC.org can better meet those needs. The survey will run until the middle of November. At that time, we will be closing the survey and posing the results.

Dearth Of New Internet Sites

We have noticed a trend in the last few years. Fewer and fewer new educational web sites are coming on line. And many existing K-12 web sites are disappearing.

A prime example is an K-12 teacher who posts an excellent page or site on a subject of interest. A few years later, they move on to another school district or retire, and their "personal" web pages are deleted from the school's web server. The community has lost including many excellent exemplars and lesson plans because of this problem.

Please make sure that your web content is available on a server that will not "go away". Many options are available, including free web hosting -- content hosting offer link

We at K12IRC.org are also looking at the possibility of providing hosting and a home for web pages and sites of interest to the K-12 educational community.

Let us know what you think by e-mailing webmaster@k12irc.org.

RSS Feeds Now Available

Many news-related sites and blogs provide RSS feeds, and now so does K12IRC.org. RSS feeds allow you to monitor the latest news and updates.

The RSS page lists the RSS feeds available at K12IRC.org. It also gives details as to how RSS feeds work and how you can monitor them with software you probably already have.
