It's indeed a very black day ... 4 teachers, 22 pupils of +-12 years old, still so young!

I can't imagine what those parents must have felt today, not knowing if their own child still lives...

Last week 2/3 of our school was away with busses (for one or more days)... There even was an accident in London - with the end of the bus - a whole window collapsed... but our pupils were luckily okay... (but shocked)

TODAY we realise, more than ever, how lucky we all are ...

Deepest condolences to the families and schools!

We just heard about the very sad news of the touring car accident in Switzerland, in which 28 Belgium people died, among them 22 Belgium students.
In this Learning Circle community we would like to share our deepest condolences to our colleagues from Belgium... what a black and sad day.

You’re welcome Simon, great work being posted !!
As you said, this is learning by doing. Wiki’s are created to support collaborative learning and group work. So first use a Word.doc to collect research outcome is a different way ofg working. In some circles students even create their own (free!!) wiki to work and then at the end “harvest” and copy the outcome to the Learning Circles wiki.
What I like best about wiki is the possibility to add all kinds of files... liken for example Vocaroo... see how easy it is to use it as a comment on the work of Eline, Lisanne and Daphe.
Enjoy your spring holiday week, it’s back to school before you know  greetings, Bob

Tnx Bob, i've posted all the anwsers. It was a bit difficult sometimes, because the students put quite some effort on the lay-out and presentation of the question and many of that wasn't possible to copy and even caused problems with the added tabs, automatic numbers etc. Sometimes a picture jumped to the other side of the page, but i did my best to make it readable.. We'll take this expience with us and next time we'll just work and publish @ the wiki.

yes we can certainly help.... in LC wikis uploading of pdf's or word.docs is not an option as in some schools downloads are blocked!
Simon, please call me today, so I do not have to type my fingers blue to explain :-) Pref call when you are also on-line and in wiki. gr Bob.

I've got a question. I got the awnsers from my students, with lot's of pictures and text, as a .pdf .docx and .doc format. I wanted to post some of the finished awnsers at the wiki. But how can i upload it and put in at the question page? I thought i saw the introductions of the Phillipines were uploaded as .pdf. But i don't know how and it's cooler when the awsers are published at the Wiki in the lay-out the students did it. Anyone can help?

Our students are finisching the latest awnsers today. They really enjoyed the research phase. Instead of, sometimes, boring lessons, now they could work at the project. They have to make the conclusion in groups and the best conclusions will be posted again. They'll get a mark for that. After that the class wants to organise an exchange program for students. Maybe it's possible to meet (some) of the Belgium or Dutch groups as a followup from this project? If anyone is interrested, please tell me. Our idea was to let the students visit our school and city for two days. The class will arrange a sleeping place and a program for the two days. It would be great if some weeks later we can visit your school and city then?

Sorry for posting "almost the same question"...Our apologies...We just posted our question without considering other questions....

This is a request to ONLY upload small pictures (between 50-100 Kb)...
Adding 10 times a 2Mb picture (directly taken from your camera) makes a wiki page 20Mb!!
With a small internet connection and 5-10 pc's in a class room it can easily 10-15 minutes before your page is opened.
In the sidebar we have added a very simple tool calle image resizer, see --> https://gtpcuninaefsjan2012.pbworks.com/folder.php?folder=image_resizer
It will only take a few minutes to make big images small. and is highly appreciated by your fellow LC partner classes.
Enjoy your weekend,greetings to all, Bob
