I know some of your attended CoSN - did you hear the presentation on Notschool.net?
What did you think? I am interested in how successful it is.
Notschool.net, a United Kingdom-based international virtual learning community. Notschool.net offers an alternative to traditional education for students who, for a variety of reasons, can't cope with school.
from eSchool News:
"We're the absolute antithesis of what school is," said Jean Johnson, project director.

Sharon indeed Notschool is UK based it was started by Futurelab under the guidance of Prof Stephen Heppell if you search under these names you may find out some further information. I know that part of the project wa to encourage disaffected teenagers to undertake project work using cell phones !!!
I recently had the privilege of hearing Stephen Heppell at an IB conference in Singapore. Wonderfully inspiring. He has many fingers in many pies, but the notschool initiative (http://www.notschool.net/inclusiontrust.org/NS-overview-notschoolho...) is extraordinary. So is the ultraversity project (http://www.ultraversity.net/) - have you seen this?

Stephen's blog is here: http://www.heppell.net/weblog/stephen/

Have fun!
