Re: A message for Vance's blogging students
- Susanne and Chris,
Thanks very much for responding to my students' blogs. I posted your
reactions at http://vance-pi.blogspot.com/ and showed them to my
students in class. They were REALLY PLEASED that someone had read
their blogs and responded. I told them they could answer Susanne's
questions in the CALL lab after class. At least one did:
Regarding Mark Warschauer's tragic situation, he has directed people
to Mikey's site at http://members.cox.net/michaelkai for instructions
on how those concerned might contribute.
Postings on this topic so far have been circumspect but let's caution
each other not to speculate about what happened on a public list such
as this. If you have facts to report, fine, but speculation can
cause damage inadvetently. I just thought I'd better say that.
I'm flying to the states tonight and will hopefully rejoin my wife in
Abu Dhabi at the end of the month. I hope to be back in regular
contact in September.
