This paper examines a distinctive approach to qualitative research that was employed in a recent study to open a gateway to understanding the impact of the shootings at Columbine High School. Using the Columbine study as a model, it analyzes and delineates a process for collecting data through modified oral history practices, displaying data through stories using a specialized form of poetic representation, and disclosing results through strategies adapted from educational criticism and connoisseurship.

Today, the lifelong learning has become a necessity in most professions, especially in computer science where people are constrained to follow fast developments.This learning is predominantly informal, based on selfstudying. Internet has turned into the most important source of all kind of information. Many Web sites provide tools and services for exchange of knowledge between people sharing a common concern, and that has a significant influence on self-studying. Personal learning environment provides an opportunity for the user to create and manage his or her environment for learning and knowledge exchange. This article describes a model of personal learning environment based on available free Web services.

The didactic model LdL (Lernen durch Lehren) as a way of preparing students for communication in a knowledge society
'Learn by teaching' has been elaborated into a meta-model (Meta)LdL that aims at giving students a platform to acquire the competencies considered necessary for knowledge societies. 97 students participated in a questionnaire following university classes modeled on LdL. A majority of students have allowed for a gain in all competencies and claimed that no other method they were aware of would be more efficient than LdL.
