To support teachers as they develop new skills and strategies in elementary science and technology we have established the International Center for Education and Technology. Our teacher development programs emphasize the use of LEGO/LOGO to help teachers use technology as a prime curriculum material rather than use computers and related technology as a dispenser of curriculum. We try to work with teachers to build from concrete activities to abstract thinking sequences in elementary science, involving the processes of analysis, reflectivity, and hierarchical conceptualization.
