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.

Final Product Migratory Stories

I am pleased to publish the final ( scanned) draft of the Migratory Birds Project. It is now being printed so it can be displayed in the visitor centre at Hauxley nature reserve and in the conference room of Shasun Pharma.

Obviously projects like this can only happen with the support of others, so we would like to thank Steve Lowe of the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, Sandra Butler of Shasun Pharma, Cain Scrimgeour and especially Phil Allott for their time, interest and for sharing their passion for wildlife.
