The reason I have not posted lately is simple – I have been putting my effort into a student blog I have called y9msc. Not a very original name, it stands for “Year 9 Mooroopna Secondary College”. Check it out – I would love to get your comments.
After blogging to a teacher audience in 2009, I have gained enough confidence to see if a student Maths blog will significantly help students with their learning. So far mixed results. A few students don’t have internet access at home. Some have jumped right in, and already I have learnt things like – student X can’t multiply fractions.
Student Y is a keen student who cannot regularly attend school due to a medical condition. I am hoping that student Y will still have a successful year with the help of email, my student blog, and other web technology.
