First a claryfication of my last mail.:

I think a teacher should explain to his pupils that he/she is staking his
reputation, and salary, on the fact that what he/she offers will eventually
(very soon) seem useful, but that they***the students*** should be critical
of every word (thus reducing the risk of loosing that paycheck) and try to
think up better or funnier ways of reaching the goals they agree upon.

Second; I just got word that the first scool in Europe using computers
and IT from year one (thats 7-year olds) is just starting south of
Stockholm. Belgium and Scotland are to follow next week, France and Italy
later, in what is to be a global education system. The seven-year-olds are
beeing taught English to enable them to use the Net. Wonder how well
that's going to go down in France? Fresh meat Richard!

Loosely translated from Swedish:"The thought is that the kids are going
to leave the classrooms to shoot "(with their digital cameras)" and write
their own study material "(schoolbooks?)." Using the new equipment they
will collect knowledge and the teacher must teach himself to be a
guide/mentor instead of beeing a formal teacher in the old sense."

And yes, they are beeing sponsored, more info from
