The End of an Era

August 9, 2012 5 comments

After nearly 220,000 hits, readers in every country on the planet, mentions in global media, nominations for awards and recognition from  teachers and students worldwide… 6SS@NIST is shutting down. The reasons behind this are to do with every class in the school having blogs that look the same and every class in the school having blogs with similar URL addresses. The 6SS blog can now be found here: http://blogs.nist.ac.th/6ss/.

This blog has had an amazing effect on my teaching over the past three years and it has led to some amazing experiences for my students and I:

Blogging has helped my students and I by:

  • Giving us a place to react to and think about things at any time, and from anywhere
  • Allowing us to express ourselves without being interrupted or told we’re wrong
  • Allowing us to develop our thinking in a way that was not really possible before
  • Giving us a place to share our interests, our creativity and our ideas
  • Giving us an audience of real people who would read and respond to our writing
  • Connecting us with other people
  • Giving us a way to make homework more fun and more connection to what we do in class
  • Giving us the possibility to do “online learning” when it was not possible to come to school
  • Helping us to stay in touch during holidays

What effect did 6SS@NIST have on you?

Homework?

Am I the only one who can’t find our homework? Because I can’t find my homework I will do research on my Who We Are inquiry. I will write down all the information I have found in a small notebook for my inquiry.

I will keep checking to see if the post came up.

Suggestion: If you are not sure what to do you can do something like I am going to do. I am going to catch up on other schoolwork if I can think of something.

Spend some time looking at the homework you have done so far. Read the things you have been writing. Think carefully about the things you have been talking about recently. Think back to the videos we watched.

What are you interested in learning more about? What is most relevant to you at the moment or in the next year or so?

This will be your research for next week and you will become an expert on it. Select an inquiry carefully and write a comment to tell us what you will be working on.

Homework: Your Choice

“The changes and challenges we face as we grow help us to

understand who we are”

This is our central idea.

I would like you to come up with your own idea about how to show what you think about this. You can share your thoughts however you like, but we must be able to see what you have done – you can’t just talk about it. If you want to talk about it, film yourself talking!
