    Work Experience Students

    Hi there,

    I have stupidly agreed to allow two 15yo boys from the secondary across the road shadow me for a week in June, one of there Mums is a teacher at my base Primary School.

    I had a student last year, but he was based at one of my other schools and shadowed me for 1½ days, which was fine as I showed him a bit of everything.

    So, I just wondered does anyone have any idea of what nice things I can get them to do? I am thinking its about time the serial numbers were updated!

    Show them the network and the servers and make them create a Network Topography!! may come in useful!! Or get them to create a network using virtual machines etc!! :-)

    Re: Work Experience Students

    ask them what they like doing, then spin it to your advantage.
    eg.
    "i like building computers" = "cobble a computer together out of these broken ones, then install edubuntu for little kids to play with"

    "i can make excel\access stuff" = "make me a special excel/access thing to catalogue my serial numbers. then scan them in with the barcode scanner my minion"

    "i like the internet and playing games" = go home

    If they start being little scumbags, dose them with valium

    No tell them that they are better off being a teacher

    sounds alright, i did my work experience in year 10 at a record shop, that was pretty cool. In year 12 i went to a recording studio that was awesome, the memories are a little hazy though.

    Re: Work Experience Students

    Ask any teachers if they would like ICT support for Year 7 or 8 lessons using ICT and give boys a timetable of those lessons they are supporting for the week.

    This will give them some structure and can have a real positive effect on the lesson especially if the teacher is a little ICT phobic.

    Be careful what you show them or their own school EduGeek will be after you as they've realised how to get round their network security measures!

    The one I had last year showed me all the proxy bypass sites that got through the filter. They were blocked pretty quickly after that. However I admit I used them once or twice to view some blocked forums.
