It seemed like such an innocuous thing to do but I clearly didn't thoroughly think things through (hey hey, alliteration kids).
We have a student learning system at school called Schoology. It started a few weeks ago and staff and students are getting slowly into it together. Usually technology + students means they are way ahead of teachers but in this instance we seem to be slowly learning about the possibilities of Schoology together.
I placed a photo on my profile page that Adam had taken of me in San Francisco (below right) and placed on his facebook page.

stoopid he can be!
I was at school without my picture files so I went to my blog to find a picture of Wafi. As I was doing so the girls spied the title to the blog - Wozza's Place. "Who's Wozza?". they asked innocently.
At that point I swallowed hard, made noises like a blocked drain, and said, "Um...actually - that's me".
BAM!!!! The genie was out of the bottle and I have had to face some WOZZAAAAAH type comments on their Schoology messages to me over the last few days..
I had to have 'the talk' and explain to the girls that calling me Wozza from now on was NOT going to happen. They are a sensible bunch and they knew what I meant. More sensible than me as it turns out.
Moral of the story? Don't you eat that yellow snow!
Love and peace - Mr Purdy
