A Word to the Wise

This may be obvious to everyone but me – last night, I discovered why it is perhaps a bad idea to use an URL shortening/bookmarking service such as bit.ly for 6th grade students.

Namely, that when non-listening, non-attentive students go home and type that shortened link into their web browser, not reading carefully and typing K instead of k, or 0 instead of O, or l instead of I…  inappropriate websites might come up.

Lesson learned.  Next time, save the Google Docs Contact Information Survey (which I love and have used through three beginnings-of-class now) until *after* the easy-to-find Homework Calendar is functioning.
