Sitting at the kitchen table, checking tweetdeck. I liked the questions and where they led us, and the outsider’s view on my new (ish) obsession 😉
C = me S= my eight year old son
S Why’s your photo on that page? Who are all the other people?
C Those are people I talk to on the computer
S Are they your friends?
C Yes, some of them, and teachers from other parts of the world …
S What do you talk about?
C Teaching mainly, and other things, things in the news, things we’re interested in …
S Where are they from?
C Some are from Spain, some are from the UK; some are from Portugal, Brazil, Japan
C No, I don’t think so, not at the moment …
S What language do you use?
C English mainly … sometimes there are messages in Spanish … sometimes in Portuguese or Italian or French …
S In Japanese?
S In German?
C Yes …. or Greek, or Dutch, or Norwegian … I don’t understand those.
S What do you do when you don’t understand?
C Well, you don’t have to answer them all. If you don’t understand them, or you aren’t interested, you don’t have to answer … that’s what’s good about it, if you want to join a conversation, you can …. But if you don’t, you don’t have to … it’s not rude, unless they ask you a direct question
S Is it fun?
C Yes, look, sometimes I get links to great videos …
[I imagine you can guess where that took us …. 😉 ]
