Abstract

This paper describes teacher collaboration enabled by digital platforms. The Knowledge Building International Project (KBIP 2007-2014) operates on the basis of locally based networks of innovation distributed around the globe. Pedagogical and research activities are conducted within local university-school-government partnerships connected to one another. One highlight each year is a three-day onsite summer institute conducted in one of the participating countries, and focusing on a local environmental issue. Despite the challenges of differences in language, culture and time zone, there have been high levels of motivation shown by teachers and students to participate in KBIP. Implementing KB as a pedagogical approach is an innovation and a challenge, both for teachers and learners.
