The Collaboratory

Workplan Values

Open source communities are like schools: loosely-coupled and non-commercial. Both are fed by people intrinsically motivated to contribute and collaborate.

We believe schools should strive to be learning organizations, not bureaucracies, balancing top-down planning with self-organization.

We marry teacher professional development and technology planning to support the contributions and buy-in needed for what is easier to buy than use well.

Please pardon any unfamiliar (or familiar!) jargon and read about our model.

New Projects

We bring tools, practices and people together in new ways to help classrooms and schools become learning communities.  Nascent initiatives:

  • Coding Together: A blended after-school program where teachers from schools that offer programming courses serve middle-school students in schools that don't. 
  • Social Learning Patterns Wiki: Documenting the Instructional Design decisions and resources that connect students with Communities of Practice.
  • My Instructional Designs: A complement to Learning Management Systems where students complete online workbooks and take their work and course content with them afterwards.
