Ning in Education reminds me of a blog template that is very user friendly for educators. I set up an account and looked around my site a bit and the obvious use of it might be to communicate with educators that can provide insight, share ideas, etcetera. It would also be a good place to stay in touch with old pals in the field or network to make new ones. The readings discuss the value of creating one's own social network and development of a community that converses in one professional domain. Group participation around a topic offers new users to connect and participate in the discussion. At first blush it doesn't look like a tool I would use with children.
