Being supported in the work we do as early childhood professionals can come in many forms.
Members constantly gush about the value of networking and community support that ECE-RJ provides.
Sharing ideas; supporting each other; responding to each other’s questions; and being there for one another is part of what makes ECE-RJ who we are.
The conversations in emails, during MeetUps and at conferences and kallot are enlightening, innovative and inspiring. Keeping track of what we hear and learn is another story.
The solution to this challenge has arrived in the form of Forums on the ECE-RJ website. The three NEW Forums (one each for directors, assistant directors, teachers) are private communication tools that allow for the same type of support and “dialogue” as our emails (Listserv) with the added feature of archiving and searching.
All documents, conversations, images, and videos are saved directly to the website, and members can search within each “lounge” (Director Lounge, Assistant Director Lounge and Teacher Lounge) to find what they need. No more digging up old emails. No more cringing as you hit send when you know that you are asking a question that was asked before. We now have one place to keep track of all of the conversations, all of the ideas, and all of the support and encouragement. We even get email notifications when there is a new comment, so we will not miss a thing.
Come check it out the forum for your membership category. Please know the Director Listserv is still up and running as we transition over to the new Forums.
