Pga ändrad tjänst…

…så kommer denna sida nu att läggas på is. Jag hade en tanke att radera allt innehåll, men kanske är det så att det kan finnas lärare och/eller elever som finner material från sidan användbart. Det är fritt fram att använda det man vill, men några nya uppdateringar kommer med största sannolikhet inte att göras.

Titta istället gärna in på mina andra bloggar:

Hackschooling – a summary!

Hi kids! Thought I was just going to make a short summary of all the great work you presented during Hackschooling. You did so many fun and interesting presentations, and your topics were filled with inspiration! As with everything else in life, everything can´t fit everyone. Some of you found it difficult to work at home and some of you could have spent your time more wisely during class. I hope that when you evaluate your work, you think of what you can improve during next course.

Both Billan and I were so impressed with your imagination and all the skills you showed us during your presentations! It was a mix of fantastic topics – for example – how many of you knew that Fatema is going to be a designer, Phoung has a dream to become a doctor and help people in her native country, Ted loves to play American Football, Jakob is a Daredevil on the motorcross and that Linnea is a great actress? We all knew that Kaltrina was a Belieber – didn´t we ? 😉 Thanks for sharing your dreams – and remember – never stop BELIEVING!

Jakob in action!


Linnea – remember your teachers when you are famous! We would like to go to the Oscar Award – me and Billan 😉
