Me (abridged version)
Arthus is an pompous 15-year-old student who currently attends Champlain Valley Union High School. When not absorbed in the easy work of school, he enjoys developing web applications and playing soccer. This promising individual hopes to go forward with a glorious career in web technologies and science. He is also interested in developing better writing skills and acquiring basic social skills. This blog is a fusion of all these interests and explores the educational opportunities the web presents with a personal touch. Apparently, Arthus also likes to talk in the 3rd person. If any of this sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to get in touch or feed me. Whatever you interest, this blog may offer some informative and entertaining parts if you sift through the dirt and sand.
I’m intrigued! A web developing, poetry writing (read some of it!), soccer playing, blog writing student contributing to the bigger picture of education. I want to know what inspires this kid. I want this kid in my classroom. I want to know what other kids in his classes are doing. I want all students to have this kind of voice. This is a fantastic illustration of what student blogging can look like. As an example, take a look at his “Annual Report” post. What a great project on so many levels.
