How important do you think it is for the United States to have plenty of computer programmers? Pretty important, right? Just think about how much technology you’re surrounded by every single minute of your life. Our use of technology and software is obviously only going to grow. This is why we believe it’s crucial to teach our children to code. One way we can all easily do that is to… read more →
A very common question that we get from MemberHub users is around sending messages to only select people (rather than the entire group). With a new enhancement to Discussions, we’ve made it much easier to send messages to select group of people inside a hub.

In last month’s post, I talked about your role in developing life-long learners of your staff through professional development experiences. This is a bit of an extension of that previous post with some specific suggestions for professional development resources to enhance your work with young children and their families.

Getting parents involved from the beginning is the first step towards a great year together! Here are some of my thoughts on how you can do that.
School’s out for summer! Or is it really?!? It all depends on your program and your perspective. My program operates from Labor Day to Memorial Day, so the students have already been out for three weeks. We do have some summer sessions and already have one of those under our belt, too. If your program is year round, summer may not necessarily bring much change in routine for you. The one… read more →

But probably the most important role you have is as a communicator. You need to be a good communicator with your students and peers, but maybe most importantly with parents.

If you’re in the early childhood education field you probably know that there is an ever-increasing amount of networks and online sources for ECE professionals to get the latest news and resources. I’ve personally gotten to know quite a few experts in the ECE field and can recognize when there’s good content that needs to be shared. So we’ve decided to start a monthly newsletter geared specifically to helping Early… read more →
One of the challenges that organizations have experienced with MemberHub is the ability to communicate at multiple levels within their organization. For example, many of you have created an organization-wide hub, but you’ve always had to remember to add new people to that hub along with any other groups they need to collaborate with.
