The Reinventing Education project was established under a $2 million dollar grant from IBM to the West Virginia Department of Education. Its purpose is to define and validate criteria for creating instructional plans that use the power of the Internet to address the West Virginia Instructional Goals and Objectives and improve student achievement and learning. A Criteria for Excellence was created, then employed by a group of pilot teachers to develop lesson plans that would be peer reviewed, validated by field testing, observed during classroom implementation, and repeatedly revised. The resulting lesson plans have resulted in significant learning improvement and have been placed in the Best Practices database and shared with all teachers in West Virginia. Instructional plans have been developed for K-12 classrooms in the areas of math, language arts, social studies and science by teams of teachers, pre-service teachers and college instructors. On line professional development facilitates implementation of the instructional-collaborative environment.
