I just received an e-mail from one of the founders of a new site called School of Everything, which is a community dedicated to teaching and learning... what a great idea.... of course I signed up!!! :-)
Here is part of the e-mail I received, which explains it much better than I ever could:
"We're a web site where teachers in any subject, anywhere in the world, can advertise for free and find new students.
We've been described as 'MySpace for teachers' and 'eBay for knowledge' ( but the way I like to explain it is that if Etsy is a space where people can sell their creations, School of Everything is all about learning - or teaching - the skills you need to create. We launched in September 2008 and already have teachers offering classes in thousands of subjects.
Beading is one of the top searches on School of Everything - there are so many people out there who want to learn to make beautiful things but are looking for a teacher to support them. "
Sounds great to me... so, as I said... I signed up!!! :-) go check it out... let me know what you think... they have an Arts & Crafts section: http://schoolofeverything.com/category/artscrafts
