We have a VERY old piece of software we use for a year group activity called "NEWSTREAM" (Apparently it's Copywrited Actis ltd 1997).
For the activity we devide the whole year group into teams and they have to produce a broadsheet and tabloid newspaper. Newstream software has a number of different packages, the basic one just churn's out random news that the kids use for the paper. Other packages are specific major news scenarios that one group of pupils interact with this group then give press conferences to the rest of the year group which change as the day goes on simulating the flow of news.
My problem is the software is old and rubbish and for reasons ebyond me only seems to work with parallel deskjet printers and network printers. The former I am running out of the latter are hard to arrange to go in classrooms.
Has anyone HEARD of this software or knows of an update as so far I have been unsuccessfull in finding one.
