Well known educator, Charlotte Mason once wisely said: "Unless our method of education allows children the opportunity to establish relations with many different things, a gallon of teaching will result in only an ounce of learning."
The Lobster Network is about connecting you- connecting you with the items that you need and connecting you with the people who need the items that you have. Whether you want to sell, buy or give away, the Lobster Network is a great tool to help you in your Homeschool!
It is totally FREE to join the network and it is easy too. I joined and set up two separate groups for our Homeschool Support Group (T.E.A.C.H. Home Educators!) to use very quickly. We are using it as a way to track our lending library. Our Librarian can easily see who has borrowed an item and anyone can view the listing to see who has the item they need and when it will be returned.
We are also using it to set up a "barter" type system wherein those members of our group who have a service or item to trade, can let everyone know what they have and what they need. This is perfect for many in our group, because we have quite a few self-sufficient types, crafters and Homesteaders!
We are just beginning to use the network, but so far it is going well and our members are starting to join up so that they won't miss out on all the great stuff people want to give them or sell them.
We are very pleased with the service we have received and we are excited that this resource was created by a Homeschooling family and is available to us at no charge!
Imagine the possibilities for a great venue like this ...
