My mum is a lecturer in marketing, advertising and international business. Mum also knows more than I realised about the online worlds I am used to - myspace, online gaming - X-Box and Playatation as well as knowing alot about tools and other things that I did not know existed.
I am a year 10 student in Melbourne Australia and have not had a great time at school due to having chronic fatigue for along time.
Mum gave me a choice to continue in formal education for the remainder of this year (at school) or to work alongside her, learning what I need to and more - that is what she told me.
I have decided to let mum guide me and will be learning from home, using social networking tools and technologies as well as other online materials, mum has found.
I am a little scared but I trust my mum and already think this is going to be fun too.
Mum is a member of alot of online networks and wants me to join in too. I am still not sure exactly what they are all about but I am looking forward to learning and connecting with others around the world whilst I am doing so.
Not sure how it will all go, but it has to better than school - for me anyway.
