  1. The problem with these Comenius and other projects is the continuity, It is a maximum of three years with a little bit money. I heard that it was not easy to be in a project. You have to get the money from the European platform in your country. (partly?) That means that in a mixed department there is a possibility that workers from one country get the grant and others not. They are meant to be used for different purposes and not for a platform for teachers. In the Netherlands most of the money goes to language teaching. I once made the comment that learning languages is good for goin
  2. I have been head of the Biology Department from the start of it. I think the main reason ,to keep it simple, why it stopped is lack of funding for the members of the department. Funding means time. Making something for the vs has been proven to be complicated. What was to be made should have an European dimension. There were also some does' and does nots. We had to discover and discuss what to put on it. There was a central discussion too and these discussions were not always in pace. Language was the second one. There have been made lots of materials (at least 700MB for us alone) which co
  3. Hi All, In the Netherlands there is an upcoming trend to speak of sciences in stead of biology. physics and chemistry in 12-16y education. Here we have mostly biology in first year then in the second year a combination of physics and chemistry ending in a streamed choice for either biology or chemistry and physics for examination. I thought science was only a new name for old content. But now I have read a new thing, "the physics first" movement. The idea I read was on an American website for a science method. I am a Biologist and I think it is not wise to confront 12y olds with applied m

  6. Hi Pastoral care editors, It is impossible for me, reading your messages what is meant by pastoral care. Is it psychology, filosophy, mentoring or ...... what. Is it a subject or a task? Is it social care? Is it done by a pastor? Is it blue, red, yellow or green ..... Huub Schoot
  7. Hi Forum members, I experience that the existence of schools is a luxury that our youth is lucky to use. (Although...) At our college there is now for a couple of years a distance learning stream for those who want to be a secondary teacher and have passed the necessary access exams. We call it side-stream. But there are also expert-certficated courses and students. These students are mainly people from 30 years and up. But I found out in e-mail talks that this is the hard way: First is TIME; for people with normal hours it is very hard to find time to study , to work on tasks or to do p
  8. Beste Marco en Nico? De vraagstelling is te breed. Het onderwijs in Nederland bestaat niet. Scholen hebben veel meer vrijheid om te veranderen dan waar ze -over het algemeen- gebruik van maken. Veranderingen vinden plaats op scholen niet in "het" onderwijs. Beeld dat veel docenten van Den Haag hebben is dat er een hok vol regelaars zit die het de scholen moeilijk maken, dat is maar voor een klein deel waar. De meeste maatregelen gaan om geld. Wat wel een probleem is om gerealiseerd te krijgen zijn extreem kostbare veranderingen zoals laptops. Maar welke visie ligt daar achter en kan di
  9. The Biology Deparment is a relatively young Department. It is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. Huub Schoot from the Netherlands is the head of department. There are four team members in the department. Rik Palmans from Belgium, David Faure from France (International School), Nick Hoebe from the Netherlands and Josep M.Llort Planchadell from Catalunia . What we are looking for is information for European Biology Teachers with some EAV. EAV is European Added Value. Some topics on the website of the Department are: The Famous European Biologist's site. T
  10. Hi, my name is Huub Schoot. Huub stands for Hubert in English but I like Huub more.... I am a biologist and have an university degree in education as well.

I was (and still am) developer of ICT teaching (learning) materials so I give courses in a teacher training college in the practical use of ict in the classroom as a tool, and my interest is finding ways to use ict in that manner. I am an inservice trainer in high
