Today’s guest blog comes from Jack Hadley, CEO of Lava7 and
an adjunct professor at BYU. We frequently hear about educators using Ning in the
classroom, but it’s rare to find out just how effective using a
Ning Network in a school setting is. That’s why it was so exciting
to read a recent post from Jack, explaining how he used a Ning

and if they’d recommend it. After reading, we asked him to pen a
similar post for the Ning Blog.
