    Thanks for this post, it made me think and I look forward to what seeing what others offer up!
    *On your second point about digital tools that support project management, how about team “start” pages. With Pageflakes, Netvibes, iGoogle, or other personalized home pages a group using a shared un & pw can structure projects, take notes, create workflow calendars, share pictures, processes and more. Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis used start pages to great effect in the Flat Classroom Project. I’m also interested in the new Google Sites for project management– experienced those yet? http://sites.google.com
    *On your reasons teachers stick with traditional methods I suggest it has less to do with ease and convenience than with unfamiliarity with constructivist methods. How can we expect teachers to set up experiential learning when they never learned this way themselves? It’s a huge intellectual and psychological leap and people’s very identity gets balled up in it…

    Good points Jane. The big disadvantage I see to Google Sites is that your school has to have moved its entire domain over to Google Apps. I agree, personal experiences are key for practical implementation by teachers.
