  • Good afternoonI was fortunate enough to attend the ISTE 2010 Conference this year in Denver Colorado . One of the Workshops I was impressed with , used a NING and a WIKI in a Global Collaborative Project - called the Digiteacher Project – Digital Citizenship within a Project-Based Learning Environment.I thought the basic principles could be applied to any Collaborative Project so decided to try this out with my Year 10 Science classes on the Crumple Zones EEI
