    Known as “stomach flu” in Estonian, I am now in the grip of this horrid disease. Things just do not work out as they are supposed to, lately.

    Anyway, I was planning on having a discussion on the whole e-election circus (both the electronic voting and the database problems), but apparently you’ll have to resort to the good-ol’ finger and keyboard combo.

    Thus, please write a semi-formal essay on Estonia e-election of 2011 focusing on the ITGS triangle. The structure of this piece of writing can, FOR EXAMPLE, be: intro, aspect 1 (pick one topic), aspect 2 (pick one topic), aspect 3 (pick one topic), conclusion. The aspects are the sides of the triangle.

      There is no information available on this, and most of us did not follow the elections, so writing an essay on this will prove somewhat difficult. Please give us another topic, or an extra task concerning our HTML or PHP assignment.

      Sorry, I was asleep (feeling really ill here). I think the least you can do is write on the whole idea of electronic voting. Also, I’m pretty certain following the elections is hidden somewhere in the IB student profile as a given. Thus, make brains explode.

    Äge, valimiskomisioni kodukas ametlikult ei tööta, kogu info saab praegu aint läbi Twitteri ja Facbooki. Sotsiaalmeedia päästab päeva (Y)

        Brent, palun kirjelda kuidas sa selle lahendasid. (Võid mulle meili kah saata mingite failidega –; ma siis uuriks ja kommenteeriks kas on hea lahendus või mitte…

          Ma alguses lähtusin loogikast, et <img src= koodist piisab, sest et näidata php-s näitex neid randoomseid numbreid tuleb panna " echo $result; "(vms), kuid nagu hiljem selgus, oli kogu viga sellest, et mul puudusid ülakomad( ' ' ) img src koodi ümbert.

            ja ofkoors kui enamus lehest on html, siis on ka see variant:


            ehk siis – kui on hunnik htmli, siis pole otstarbekas (ega eriti selge) seda kõike echoda php’st, vaid pigem igal võimalusel PHP blokk lõpetada (?> ), ja siis lihtsalt html kirjutada.

            ning siis kui vaja mõnd väärtust PHP-st väljastada, alustad uuesti PHP blokki (<?php ?>)

    Itgs Project 

    The aim of my project is to create a homepage for the portals in the Tallinn English College Library. The page will have various subcategories like catalogs, libraries, databases, etc.  All the subcategories will have links to different websites with descriptions of their content. I also plan to make the homepage bilingual (Estonian and English).

    Magnetic Waves 

    They make my hand better. Supposedly. Because all I do is sit with a big cylinder (wherein my hand rests) on my lap and it just goes click-click-click. And I’m reading because it takes 30 minutes of the clicking cylinder per session. Anyway, the curing of the hand commences at 12 and ends 30 minutes past 12 and I’ll be back at approx 12.50 PM.

    Meanwhile you have two options (we will analyse your manuals during the second lesson):

    1) make a presentation on the server structure of World of Warcraft vs EVE Online.

    2) read this ( and make a presentation on selling/buying property on Second Life and Entropia Universe.

    An essay about the extended essay 

    Are games an essential part of a child’s development in the future? This inspiration or interest came to me when I saw a video about Jane McGonigal’s views over gaming changing the world. This is quite certainly a very disputable topic but my aim is to concentrate on the views of have gaming in fact influences children’s lives today and how it can develop them and due to that change the world. To study this topic I am going to buy Jane McGonigal’s book “Reality is broken”, evaluate some educational sites such as Khan Academy and others, read some news articles on the subject and use material form a video about Jesse Schnell’s gaming standpoints.

    My first and primary source about this sort of global gaming revolution will be taken from the book “Reality is broken”. My primary goal with the book is to bring out its ideas, analyse and evaluate them and also give as many examples as possible. According to the info in the book I intend to pick out some main arguments that seem to be the most relevant and compile a questionnaire for students of different ages in my class to answer. From this I can see what the students actually think of the subject; of course a little introductory part would also be in order. I am pretty sure that if I just make random questions then that will not yield the knowledge I am seeking about those specific viewpoints. So to put it short I am going to explain some things to them and then ask the appropriate questions. After that I will make a table or graph showing the results.

    The second part that is quite important in the changing of the world is educational sites. Khan academy that was introduced to us in class is a solid example of the vast opportunities for students who are either not that bright in a subject or exceedingly talented. Such sites have the possibilities to revolutionize the educational system. The biggest factor why this is possible is because all of it is shaped into a game with achievements, progress maps, tutorial videos and so on. My aim is to find out what aspects contribute to the success of such sites and how they can be enhanced in the future. I am also going to make a survey about this sort of gaming but my target group for this will be people of all ages not just only school children. I will also explore everything on the website and provide photographic examples of its capabilities.

    Then I discovered a video about Jesse Schnell’s ideas about gaming in the future. They were at some point a bit radical but he did make valid argumentations and his talk was quite logical. This will be a good example also to support McGonigal’s viewpoints to some extent but also will reveal new and relevant ideas about the topic. In this video he talked about some people and methods used to make gaming be useful so I intend to investigate these methods a bit more to find out the main points.

    I found some articles on BBC and the Guardian about educational gaming programs that are being used to encourage pupils to be active learners and also about the British gaming industries effect over the years. I think these articles will also provide with substantial examples of how gaming has influenced people and why they have influenced in such a manner.

    I also want to get in contact with some computer game specialists who can also give their opinion for my research about these viewpoints I am discussing and analysing. My one option is to try and get in contact with the company Andrico who specialize in the repairing of games as far as I know. But if that does not work then I need to find an alternative maybe the pro games shop will be delighted to have an interview with me. Other options include trying to get in contact with major companied via e-mail or some other form of internet-based communication.
