  1. I will, thanks.
  2. pinnacle software has proven its use to me, perhaps it can be of help to you.
  3. Great site! Something I have been looking or for quite some time now!
  4. Happened to me a couple of times, so i can relate
  5. If you go to www.veursstip.nl, then click FAQ and then Stipinfo, you will find a short English introduction. I am working translating the whole site, but this could be a start.
  6. First of all our system is not the standard way of teaching in the Netherlands. If a students does not do an assigment he/she will have a talk with one of the teachers responsible. If that does not help, we talk some more But in general we do not have to. If the student doesn't complete any assigments he/she will not advance and in the end will not graduate. The assignments are 'real'. E.g. An assignment could be arrange a stafflunch. The students who choose this assignment will have to do the shopping cooking etc. etc. and face the staff who will have to eat it! Assignments can be anything as long as it is meaningful for the student to complete. The student has to learn by doing.
  7. Andy and John, As I wrote before I work in the kind of educational system you describe. Perhaps you can come and visit us someday?
  8. We are now working in such a system. The students choose assignments and by doing these assignements they learn necessary skills and acquire knowledge. There are no lessons, but students can go to teachers to help them with completing their assignements.. if enough students want the same explenation a kind of lesson is organised. The students themselves decide when to attend and what to learn.
  9. I tend to agree with Graham, however bringing the Jfk discussion to an end is not solving anything. As John pointed out it is not the jfk forum who is doing this 'wrong" ,it are all the others! All the reasons for not posting are tried by me. Marking, just plain old busy and so on and so on. But to make this forum a success we need to be posting. I agree with John and Andy that they cannot do it alone. But we also need a practical use. What i mean by that is that contributing to this forum must serve some practical need, otherwise why post at all?
  10. I am busy trying to come up with a free solution for creating my own flash games. I have one week left... I hope someone is able to help me.
  11. Why only witness? What historical event would want to stop from happening, or change in any way?
  12. An old , very old, joke is of course; "who invented the steam engine? Watt. I asked who invented the steam engine! " In real life that could never happen, or could it..Last weekend some asked me the question and i replied; Watt. Surprisingly the question was asked again...
  13. What about John Lennon? He sure made his mark in the world of music and politics.
  14. I hope not! Koene means bold in english. Well I am a very careful person...
