Watching students

Stephie was my student last year. She started posting as a class activity, but she took her posting further. Now blogging is not part of her class, it’s part of her life.
She posted her concern about whaling and friend Nadine – a really enthusiastic girl from Australia, answered immediately. In the meantime, I observed them. Loads of comments here and there and even here. I thought they could open a wiki to get organized more easily. They adopted the idea right away. You can pass by, read and even join in.

What I love about them:

  • They don’t demand help, they are autonomous. However, they appreciate suggestions. Great balance!
  • They’re good at combining action with reflection.
  • They are great at conversation. Have a look at the comments on the blogs and the discussion pages on the wiki!

I also love the fact that the web provides a territory for them to grow up and for me to watch them taking the lead !
