G’day, my name is Miss Wyatt but in the world of blogging I am either Miss W. or tasteach. Anywhere on the internet, where you see that avatar on the front of this blog, you will know it is me – I have the same comment avatar in all blogs that I run.
I have been blogging with students and teachers since 2008. Below is a list of my blogs – some are no longer being used as I have retired after 35 years of teaching in Tasmanian schools and don’t have my own class any more.
- Technology in our classroom is where I was learning about blogging along with my grade 6/7 class – no longer in use but does contain some great posts with links to different web tools to try.
- Kids in the Mid is a blog created when I taught computers to students in our middle school. Again no longer in use but does have good posts to learn from.
- An image a day is a blog where I tried to post a new image I had taken every day of the year. I didn’t succeed but I do use it now when travelling around Australia.
- Retirement, relax and travel is my own personal blog where I would ask questions of other teachers around the world about blogging and web tools. This blog is rarely used now.
Two fun blogs I began when travelling – one with a Tasmanian Devil soft toy who wrote the blog from his point of view and then when I returned from America in 2011, a squirrel came back with me and started travelling New Zealand and Australia. He also wrote his own blog of his travels.
Since the beginning of 2012, I have been in charge of the blogs set up for teachers and students in Tasmanian schools. In 2015, we began a new blog domain at xpress360 and many blogs are linked there.
Over the last three years I have been doing an online uni course for a diploma in family history, so also began a blog about my family history research.
A bit about my life
I enjoy travelling and have visited about 45 states of America and many countries in Europe and Asia. I love visiting my chat room friends and blogging classes whenever I travel.
I am also a keen genealogist, love history, researching my family tree and helping others find sources for their trees.
