From Christine Munro: This website is about "Project Based Learning for the 21st Century and has many resources. I have enjoyed watching the different videos as this tends to be my best learning modality. Watch, learn and tinker at the same time. The Project Based Learning in Hand Part 1 and 2 are great."
"At My Science Box you'll find complete, scaffolded lesson plans to teach a 4-6 week middle school science unit through activities, projects, and field trips. Every lesson has been kid-tested with students."
How can we understand education, and the roles of schools and teachers, in the “softwarised” context of the early 21st century? In this paper I focus on the issue of what software and technology really mean for education.

Ludmila Smirnova's insight:
An Impressive concept map of the learning theories with the key concepts, world views, names of the theorists and scintific fields.
"The Flat Classroom® Project is a global collaborative project that joins together middle and senior high school students. This project is part of the emerging tend in internationally-aware schools to embrace a holistic and constructivist educational approach to work collaboratively with others around the world in order to create students who are competitive and globally-minded."
"One of the main goals of the project is to 'flatten' or lower the classroom walls so that instead of each class working isolated and alone, 2 or more classes are joined virtually to become one large classroom. This is done through the Internet using Web 2.0 tools such as Wikispaces and Ning."
"The project was co-founded by Vicki Davis (Westwood Schools, USA) and Julie Lindsay(Beijing (BISS) International School, China) in 2006when Julie (then in Bangladesh) and Vicki joined their classrooms together for the first time to study and emulate the emerging flattened learning environment."
"...all of the TRS academics I spoke to during the course of my research endorsed student-led learning and used some non-traditional forms of teaching and assessment, such as presentations and group projects. The majority reported good feedback from students. The academics also told me that IBL helps to strengthen the relationship between teaching and research."
