This website has a broad vision to provide a variety of information, on-line activities, and discussion forums for children, teachers, parents, pre-service teachers, teacher educators, and educational researchers. Our basic emphasis is to promote teaching and learning through inquiry, problem-solving, and project-based approaches and to encourage meaningful, relevant, and complex learning. Of course, we also encourage creativity and critical thinking.

Explore, have fun, and interact with us and other users.
