My interest in the idea of sharing pedagogical purposes comes directly with the contact I have had with the Project for Enhancing Effective Learning at Monash University in Australia. Now each of these teachers were very active in establishing learning agendas with their classes. The impact they were having was inspiring. Each classroom tool can have a purpose beyond delivering content, and this needs to be shared.
I suppose the purpose of this website is collate, crystalise and open dialogues about how to increase this within classrooms. As the quote from Carl Bereiter illustrates this classroom methodology can empower our students.

The Process of a Project at High Tech High- a display of student work.

Love the clarity.

Love the steps.

Love the how one task informs the next.

Love the role critique plays.

Love the sharing of the process.

Love to see drafted work.

Amazed by the quality of the final work.

Love how it's cross curricular.

Love the public debrief.

Love the focus on changes made.

Love the idea of identifying difficulties.

Love the the links between hard work and success.

Befuddled by my low quality photography.
