Anatomy of an ISchoolnet School Page
1. The Map:
At the top of each international school page, you will find a map of its location. If you roll your mouse cursor over the map, it will zoom in or out. Try it. It's addictive!
2. Regions Menu:
To its left, you will see the Regions and Countries menu.
To its right, you will see the three important tags that are attached to every international school listing for the sake of organization and ease-of-use. These tags are country, city and "International Schools List." The latter was created to give us a way of listing all of the schools dynamically. You'll see what I mean if you click on that tag. It's the same as going to the "List" in the site menu. Likewise, clicking on the city or country will create a page showing all of the schools that share that tag.
4. Username and Date:
Each ISCHOOL post shows who posted it and when they did it.
5. Social Network Tools:
Five Star rating allows you to mouse over from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the best rating you can give. Facebook "Like" allows you to tell your friends and colleagues on Facebook that you like this school. Don't forget twitter, although it's in the upper-right corner.
If the author of the school's page has submitted any images, they will come near the top of the page, just after the author's username and the date of the first post, and the Five Stars.
6B. General Description:
This is where the school's representative will be able to add text and photos that you think show the important details about the school, including what it does best.
Finally, we're down to the Overview. This is where you find the essential facts about a school and how to contact it.
Street address, mailing address, phone, fax and geographical coordinates which are needed to put the marker on the map -- or you can go to the right spot and double-click with the mouse.
This is where you can tell others of your experience with particular schools. Let's see how it goes. I see it as a kind of quick-comment as opposed to a discussion item which you can add to the relevant group.
News items from the school or from the country it's in. (If you have news on your Web site, send us the rss feed!)
11. Group Member Tools:
Logged in group members will see this menu of compositional tools such as blog or event, and among many others, a list of group members.
12. Invite a Friend
Use this tool to invite others who you think would benefit from membership in ischoolnet.org.
13. Other Groups
This is always available as a fast way to find groups focused on other host countries.
