I have a Twitter watch list set up for one of my clients, Aventa Learning. They provide online classes (from Advanced Placement to Credit Recovery and everything in between) to to schools and districts around the country, and help thousands of students graduate every year.
I have to say, some of my best moments come from watching the Aventa Tweets roll by - written by students who are faced with deadlines. Often, they’re hilarious - few of which I would print in a public forum.
Once in awhile, I just have to respond.
Maybe they’ll think I’m just an old fuddy duddy who can’t mind her own business. (Accurate. I plead guilty to that.)
But maybe… just maybe, they’ll think twice about publicly announcing they are willing to cheat on their school work.
What do you think? Did I do this student a HUGE favor? Or am I hopelessly optimistic and publicly delusional myself?
Update: I couldn’t let this one pass…
