The Advanced Broadband Enabled Learning (ABEL) project seeks to transform teacher professional practice through the use of broadband technology in schools in Canada. Underlying the project is a model that provides a multi-modal learning platform, a participant driven professional growth program, a supportive implementation strategy, and an on-going formative evaluation strategy. All components of the model inter-relate in a mutually supportive manner. The preliminary results from the first 18 months of the project have been encouraging. Teachers are now more willing to investigate, experiment, and collaborate in trying out new pedagogical approaches using the ABEL tools than they were initially. They have begun integrating broadband technologies into their practice in ways that are breaking through the bounds of traditional pedagogies, offering their students more authentic and engaging learning experiences.
