Dear students:

Having accounts in your real names (sometimes with picture, city, age and physical description) is one of the most stupid things I can think of for people who in the next year or so are going to send out their CVs to prospective employers. The sort of brainless and x-rated stuff that you write there isn't going to convince them to take you on as apprentices.

Also, if you have a youtube account in your real name, yes, people can google your name and then find out that you made a video of yourself eating strawberry yoghurt with ketchup and paprika powder.

Remember when six months ago you all told me that you NEVER used your real names online? "Because we're not stupid. We know that it's a bad idea." That no one could find you? That you didn't need any lessons on internet safety?

We know that you keep googling your teachers' names. I only googled yours because when we were in the computer room one of you was shocked that her youtube account meant that there were pictures of her on the internet. Guess what: you put them there!

Your teacher whose curiosity is now entirely sated.

Whether you come at this from the perspective of a student or an educator, I'd like you to look into an old post (dreamwidth link) of mine:

I'd value your input (livejournal link) - whenever you get round to it - about your experiences with special needs students at your schools and whether they are/were integrated/included in any way or whether they lead a segregated existence from the regular students.

Just a "works in my experience/it's complicated/it's a disaster" would be great.

I would like my readers to comment and voice their opinion on what I am writing, but I don't want to see trolls in my corner of the internet.

I should probably just count my blessings that the nasty folks haven't found me...

I'm still stuck in marking hell and as always it's making me anti-social and miserable. I can't even comment on other people's posts in fear of infecting their blogs with my overwhelming negativity.

I think I'm having a Moaning Myrtle moment here.

Please send puppies and chocolate.

Apparently the livejournal attackers have changed their strategy and are now trying to get users to hand over their account details.


So, don't get fooled!

While LJ had its outage, I spent the first week of my holidays in grown-up mode dealing with a family bereavement. It's been stressful and heartbreaking and so on but having the little one around has been a lot of help. He was asleep during the memorial, bless him.

Now I'm pretty much wiped out.

Saturday's picture is behind a cut and I think it needs a warning of some sort, because it shows part of a dead animal.

Musings about warnings, nature and my feelings towards dead animals and then the picture. )
