3 A knowledge-building community

3.1 Introduction

We have the obligation to think about the future, precisely because of the type of work we do … Venturing the future is not a risk – it's a necessity of the dignity of humankind.

(The Disciplined Mind: Beyond Facts And Standardized Tests, The K-12 Education That Every Child Deserves, Howard Gardner, 2000)

This first case study shows the way in which ICT is used within a classroom community:

  • to make thinking explicit and reflective;

  • to support collaborative thinking;

  • to enable such thinking to move in new and unpredictable directions.
