The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

It never ceases to amaze me how our children have turned out.  For most of their teenage years at least they hardly seemed to listen to us at all, yet despite that a lot seems to have been absorbed.  When I was at university I studied geography and history - today I have a son at university studying geography and a daughter planning to go to university to study history.  And in addition our son is planning on becoming a teacher, possibly teaching special needs teenagers (which is where I started teaching too, almost 30 years ago) and would like to teach in international schools, just like me!

Joal is a blogger too, and last night I was talking to him about blogging.  In the summer he set up his own blog aimed at students.  He was talking about the fact that not many students visit his site.  I decided I would write about this site here in the hope of helping him a little.  His site is aimed at older secondary and university students and looks at free technology that might be useful to them.  Perhaps some teachers reading this who teach older students might find some of the apps he recommends useful for their students.

Joal's blog is called Free Tech for Students.
