Ok, since no one has leapt up and yelled "Yep, I wanna to share my favorite
lists. Me first, me, me, me!" I'll start this thread. My favorite

Professional listservs;
ArtsEdNet: Of course, no need to explain why!

Edtech: great people, a wealth of information on how to integrate tech into
education, willing to help with hardware/software problems. Also
up-to-date info on latest tech issues.

Middle-L: A middle school listserv with fun witty people who have that
"Don't mess with me, I'm a junior high school teacher" sense of humor and
willingness to share what works and doesn't work in teaching. My favorite
non-art listserv!

K-12 Admin: Not just for administrators! Also has tech coordinators and
others. Good list to know what issues are driving your administrators and
why. If you have aspirations of being an administrator some day, this is a
good list for you. (I don't have those aspirations - just wanna make that

Hobby Listservs

Altered Art: altering and making art out of everything from Barbies to
Altoid tins, great ideas (some of which are do-able in the classroom) and a
fun spirit. Lots of fun trades. Great for those of us who long to make art,
but don't have the time to do a body of work or anything large.

ATC - artist trading cards, a good group for people who want to create small
format art and do trades! I've received some awesome art in trade!

The Forge: mainly a blacksmithing list, but also great for anyone who does
metal sculpture. I'm a mixed media sculptor so this list works for me.

Ok, now this may seem like a lot of lists, but actually I belong to a slew
of more lists that are specific to my job as Technology Training Specialist.
I'm on lists for every grade level to that I can pass along info on how to
integrate tech in the curriculum.

I manage to keep this under control by using the DELETE key liberally. I
especially cherish people who create, use and don't abuse descriptive
subject lines.

OK, now your turn to share what lists feed your soul!

Hi Judy et al,
It might be a very interesting and useful thread if we briefly related which
listservs we are on and why. In addition to being art teachers, we are
educators, professionals and in our spare time (HAH!!) we probably have some
interesting hobbies. So what other listservs feed our souls?

Thanks to BJ Berquist (I still had her post from a
