About Woodgate & Stanton Fraser paper

abstract
I found very interesting many of the topics raised in the paper, in particular the discussion of the two models of science education pointed out, which I recommend authors to include in their workshop presentation.

Topics for discussion:

I think it’s very useful to consider and further discuss the list of practical issues of working in schools reported in the paper, and to capitalize on authors previous experience by confronting those issues with the requirements/constraints of eScience research projects/teams and try to envisage possible mitigation strategies to cope with them.

Yes, I also noted the discussion in section 2 of two models of science education as interesting and would second Silvia's suggestion to include this in the presentation.

I'd be pleased to have feedback on progress on the new Participate project if there's time.

As a general q. that came to me when reading this paper, I was wondering what new ways e-Science can help support the learner's reflection on their learning. Has anyone in this group look at this, if so what age range? How did you go about it? How was it received / engaged with by leaners?
