The town, liberated in 1686, with left in ruins. Only a few could survive by hiding in small chambers and wine-cellars in the neighbourhood. The bishop had a major role in rebuilding and repopulation the town. Bishop Mihály Dvornikovics had Catholic artisan families settled from German, Czech and Moravian regions, promising them certain preferences. Thereafter Vác began to develop and flourish. Beside the organized resettlement, some of the old families in refuge returned and further families arrived in the hope of more favorable opportunities.
The Rákóczi war of independence put an end to then town’s development for a while. The Habsburg troops occupied Vác in 1707. In 1709 the Serbian mercenaries serving th Habsburgs ravaged the town and caused even more devastation than the Turkish.

Overview – School Time Began Around the World

Exploring educations at some of the schools Worldwide!

Do you still remember the nervous, yet awaiting feeling that has come to you during the first weeks of schooling? In most parts of the world, there is still a lot of excitement, as there are many places in the school now. However, there are huge differences in how they are preparing for this time in different countries around the world. Let’s look at some surprising educational features that seem to us most unusual for most of us!

Hungary – In Hungary there are many possibilities: our children can go to private or public institutions, but we can also choose teachers from traditional or alternative education. However, few people know that the digitization of education has already come in Hungary: the Samsung Smart School’s classrooms at Miskolc and Jászfényszaru provide the most up-to-date information and communication tools for students who can acquire knowledge in an innovative and interactive way

Australia – The Aussie students will be having shortly School-Out summer vacation, but their school days will be back! In the meantime updating Downunder how the education is going.

The major part of Australia, which stretches from 7,692,000 square kilometers, consists of a desert country, which seems to be uninhabited. However, even in these abandoned areas there are families and small communities where children can attend state education even if there is no school nearby. But how? The solution is the Australian government’s School of the Air program, originally by radio, and nowadays, with the help of the Internet, they give individual or group lessons to children, who in the afternoon will solve their tasks with their family members.

Finland – We have often heard about Finnish education being one of the world’s best teaching systems. There, students tend to feel as if they are going to a playhouse instead of a strict school, and this encourages them to learn. In the informal education, the teacher and his personality also play an important role: for example, many have not participated in teacher training, in order not to teach them later on in accordance with predetermined rules. From then on, a variety of methods and aids come int he class hour: board games, tales or even role-playing games are part of everyday education as textbooks.

South Korea – While the Finns are trying to ban technology from education, in South Korea, the main elements of school hours are digital devices. For example, the touchscreen Samsung TS-3 smart card used in the Korean Gyeseong Primary School is used not only for simple portrayal of teachers, but also distributes information and tasks to students’ tablets, who can instantly solve them or ask questions. The results of the innovative method they speak for themselves: research shows that students have been able to concentrate more on the subject for a longer period of time and have been more enthusiastic about the classroom communication. Their thinking was also gained by the digital knowledge that has become unavoidable today.

Iceland – In Icelandic culture and traditions, the acquisition of special binding techniques plays an important role, which also means that all real Icelanders have at least one hand-knit sweater. The bonds are so seriously taken by the locals that they have made compulsory allergy in primary schools for boys and girls alike. While in the morning in Hungary the calculator, the booklets and the textbooks are placed in the schoolbag, for the Icelandic students the knitting needles should not be forgotten at home.
