Several Channels Open, members only

There is a set of associated communication means for different purposes:

1) A facebook group
et - Thinking Schools Network
Open for those who "like"(Just click link and "Like"/"Gilla")

2) A web site for members only (implemented as a Google Site) with "partner seeking" networks, schools and school people and some other material like recommended speakers, books, reports and links:

3) Mailing Lists for distribution and exchange of information.
The previous forums for discussion and debate have never gathered speed. Virtually no contributions have arrived.
So, now we are trying a couple of ordinary mailing lists instead. One in English and one in "Scandinavish". Hopefully the threshold now is lower; it is just about sending an "ordinary E-mail message". However, the messages will be moderated to filter out spam. The policy is to allow messages considered to be of interst for the "thinking community" in the school sector and elsewhere. Advertising conferences, seminars and courses will be accepted, if topic and objective are considered relevant, in particular if non-profit. Purely commersial events could normally be marketed via other appropriate channels.

You are welcome to subscribe, or unsubscribe, yourself

for the Scandinavish list,

and at
for the English one.

NT klandras av Pressens Opinionsnämnd (In Swedish)

Publiceringen i NT
Beslutet i sin helhet på
Vad som inte framgår där är att "NTs journalist Z", som upprepat skrivit osakligt och nedsättande om tjänstemannen X i kommun Y, vid flera tillfällen erbjöds att ta del av material med annan vinkling än hennes egen, men hon förklarade då att hon inte hade något intresse av det.
Kommentarer på Tänkarnätverket strax efter den klandrade publiceringen: Synpunkter på pressetik och orsakssammanhang.

Halvt förlåtet efter bytet av ansvarig utgivare och bra artikel i både NT och ÖC om en pigg och aktiv 65-åring:-)
