I know nuffin!

For someone who is always wanting to put the C in ICT , tonight I failed in my attempt to link with those who are the real communicators. I could not get the html/java to work on my blogs to produce,( no matter where I placed them) the wee snapshot of them at http://www.mybloglog.com/buzz/members/marlyn/ but I know someone will help.

Learn something every day!

My Great Grandmother, at 90, said to me that she made a point of learning something new every day. At 25 as I was then, I wondered why, but didn't question. But now I do it too, though the difference is, that I have to record it somewhere to remember it. She didn't!
So what did I learn today? I learned that many people in education are concerned about the internet behaviour and safety of our children, but that there is not much real help out there for how to tackle an ever increasing problem. I'm not writing about paedophile interest necessarily. Peer groups cause disquiet too. We as professionals have a 'duty of care' though most of this stuff is not happening in schools, but there has been a 'knock on' effect in some. As a firm believer in the C in ICT, education is the name of the game, but I am beginning to be a wee bit concerned as I try to write plans to cover this in ICT, PSD and Health, that the old adage....'You can lead the horse to water....' will apply, and they will not act upon it and as a result be no safer, despite having been 'educated'.

Been busy!

Been missing the therapy that this blogging thing has become. What have I been doing?
Writing an essay! It's the holidays I know, but when is a class teacher ever going to be able to work on the Chartered Teacher Programme except when she is not teaching! And paying £650 for the priviledge! Sno real is it? Am I daft or just approaching an impecunious retirement?
On a more positive note, my little chickadees continue to send their mail about their holidays and what Campbell bear is doing. Isn't that super? Guess they're hooked too!
