We have been nominated for an award…

6SS@NIST is on the verge of superstar status!!! It has been an amazing year and a half of amazing blogging by the students of last year’s 6SS and this year’s 6SS. I think the blog has been successful because:

  • Students were “allowed” to create postings of their own
  • We have not worried too much about spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • The blog has given the students a real reason to write
  • We have really brought our blog to life by having conversations on interesting topics
  • Students have been free to express themselves on the blog
  • Students have quickly learned the skills involved, such as uploading images, embedding videos and using tags

… and, most importantly…

  • Students have just loved having a place to think out loud, to express themselves safely and to share what they know and care about

    Wow…this is so exciting! As PYP students who are also global citizens your audience reaches beyond Thailand. This nomination acknowledges your insightful & very thoughtful reflections which you share globally. I have shared your blog with educators in New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Malaysia and will showcase it in the US in February. They all think it is awesome and so do I. All the very best with the final but remember you have won already by being nominated. A very special congratulations to Mr. Sam.

      Hi Jin, our blog is pretty good… but we’re not sure if it’s the best because we haven’t seen all the other blogs!

        Oh yes we are. I looked through first and second place from Leopold school, it’s not really as mature and educational as ours is.
