The project was designed to investigate the potential of Classroom Communication Systems (CCSs) in facilitating effective teaching and in creating effective learning environments. Drawing on the work of the NRC Committee on the Science of Learning (Bransford, Brown, and Cocking, "How People Learn (HPL) - 1999), the study examined the extent to which teachers use CCSs in their classrooms to facilitate environments which are learner-centered, knowledge-centered, assessment-centered, and community-centered. We show that the HPL centerednesses do increase in classrooms of all ten teachers involved in this study, and describe our search to explain the underlying processes and mechanisms that produce these effects. Finally, in what are perhaps the most consequential results of this study, we demonstrate probable links with several theories related to human motivation, including coping theory, Mazlow's hierarchy of needs, self-worth theory, attribution theory, and self-efficacy theory.
