Basic stuffs like solid modeling and drawing settings of course.

In other countries, secondary school students have been learning CAD for some time.

PTC (Maker of Pro/ENGINEER ) and AUTODESK (maker of AUTOCAD)
have been distributing their student version softwares free to secondary school nowadays so it is a great opportunity to learn this fun and useful PLM Solution software.

what do you think? if our school haS the offer of CAD Education?

should the students grab this opportunity, or throw it away into the dustbin?

No, they should start learning GPL license and begin using Linux to appreciate open source freeware. It's a chance that should not be thrown into dustbin.

In many countries, people learn to program in school for a long time.

suddenly it's open source vs PLM... more like a apples vs oranges war...

Yeah we should all learn how important open source movement is to our society... Look at Firefox, Linux etc, I think that secondary school students should grab the opportunity to learn them.

I came to know more about the open souce movement through the book "The World is Flat" by Thomas L. Friedmann. It's an informative book; go check it out.

Anyway, I wonder where are we going to get the manpower to teach solid modelling etc. when most schools lack computers, trained personel etc. (I had a comp lab in my sec school but it was always closed! Mini- white elephant I would say) But it's true that many other countries have already started teaching all these stuff. An exchange student from Sweden came to our class and he finished the solid modelling assignment in 1/2 the time we took because he had already learnt something similar. Scandinavian education... tops.

Scandinavians are powerful. You can watch the video I posted where the girls can sing in multi lingo. yup... for Open source lovers, LINUX is originated from Scandinavia, Finland to be exact. and it is not well received commercially as PTC has released Pro/ENGINEER for LINUX and not much sales is made. People still choose windows.

Nowadays I see sweedish everywhere around the world

too bad you are wrong. Linux is the top choice when it comes to the operating system that powers the internet you are enjoying now.

Then again, Linux doesn't come from Scandinavia... It's a marriage between a kernel written by someone in Finland and merged with the GNU operating system...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux

commercially, people use more linux than windows mind you, more commonly, Unix based operating systems. And real artists that design the animated cartoons in Hollywood used mainly Unixes in it's various iterations to do their job, not windows...

anyway, why are we talking about linux and PLM anyway? They are both related in many ways, as in symbiotic relationship...

Actually I think it's great if they taught these things in high school. I Just finished my SPM and I must say I'm entirely clueless about all this.

Just a random question:

I'm interested in using Linux but I have pretty much no idea where to start. Anyone up to teaching me?

It should be optional. My school used to have computer classes for programming and stuff but most people lack the interest to expand further. Therefore, I am usually the top in it.
