MA-TechDirs -- Massachusetts Technology Directors Listserv


About MA-TechDirs
English (USA)

Welcome to the MA-TechDirs listserv, a forum to exchange ideas and information with state Technology Directors. This list is maintained by METAA (Massachusetts Educational Technology Administrators Association)

To ensure that this listserv operates at a high 'content to noise' ratio, please observe the following protocol for each posted topic:

Member posts a question to the listserv.
Replies are sent directly to poster only, not to the listserv.
Poster collects all replies for an arbitrary period (a week?) depending on time of year.
Poster then sends the results back to the listserv, which could be the raw collection of replies, and/or a short summary of their findings.

This appears to satisfy the competing needs of those who want to know all the answers, and those who don't want to be receiving an email every 20 minutes. The net effect would be no more than 2 emails for every posted question. (In the case of no replies, the poster could indicate that.)

For those of us with threaded email systems, the 2nd email should always be as a Reply of the original.

Remember--this is NOT a discussion listserv. It is an information broadcast and request forum. Your cooperation makes this listserv work as well as it does.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the MA-TechDirs Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
