Don’t you love it when your students start to put pressure on you. Just prior to the break I suggested to our senior students that if they wanted to look for assistance with their passion project blogs they should feel free to email me with their queries. Imagine my surprise when one of the girls sent me an email alerting me to the fact that she had a couple of Comments pending approval on her blog. Naturally I was onto it straight away and the very complimentary comments, (I can see why she was after them), were soon on Emma’s blog.
The very next day I had another email to deal with. This one was even more interesting. I had previously shown off the Clustrmap associated with this blog. The student, Leo had noted it and decided if it was good enough for me to have one, he should too. He even suggested he would wait for school to resume before doing something about it. Well sure enough almost as soon as he entered our room Leo made a beeline to see what could be done. Alas I didn’t have the time given the usual start of term hustle and bustle to get the job done, though every time I looked like heading for my laptop, Leo was on my shoulder. It’s nice when the students start to take charge :).
