Abstract: This paper will report on the Interdisciplinary Multimedia Middle Years (IMYM) Climate Change pilot study carried out by Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth over the 2003-2004 school year. Fifteen pilot teachers were selected from across the province and various resources, face-to-face professional learning sessions, and an online learning community were provided to them. This pilot project was based on the IMYM model which blends an interdisciplinary constructivist approach with the integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in an effort to achieve curricular outcomes. Results were derived from the qualitative data of the IMYM pilot teachers' online reflection journals, threaded discussions and feedback as well as quantitative data from exit slips and rubrics. The pilot project was deemed a success and its findings are relevant to those interested in teacher training, and the integration of ICT into curriculum, teaching and learning.
