The project involves integrating these technologies, testing them with a draft curriculum in one classroom, revising both the technologies and the curriculum, and then testing the result in 19 classrooms during the 2001-2002 academic year. Classroom pilot teachers for the 2001 academic year are from Massachusetts public school districts (Boston, Brookline, and Maynard), as well as New York, Australia, and Israel.
The TEEMSS project had an external review during the 2001-2002 academic year by Sigmund Abeles. His report, which provides an excellent, independent, description of the project is here.
