    I know you haven't, Jack. My point wasn't a critique of your post but simply
    an attempt to show a revolution in the making with no focus on computers.

    > I don't see teaching as anything but learning facilitation.
    In principle this is exactly what they are trying to do here. They encourage
    the "teachers" not to give answers to the children but to get them to find
    the answers themselves. This is way different than teaching.

    Here too it doesn't go without resistance. Many teachers and parents are
    opposed to this "new" way.

    Before I sent the last message I tried to find some documentation on the Web
    but didn't even find adequate french descriptions. I'll try some more and
    report back.
