The Innovative Teaching and Learning Research was a 3 year international project sponsored by Microsoft Partners in Learning that examined the relationship between more innovative teaching practices and learners' development of higher order skills such as knowledge construction and collaborative problem solving. SRI International partnered with Microsoft to design mixed research methods, and carried out the project through university research teams in England, Mexico, Finland, Indonesia, Senegal, Brunei, Russia and Australia. The research findings show surprisingly consistent patterns for how teaching and learning can be transformed through teachers' redesigning learning experiences and researching the impact of their practices. Findings also show the vast untapped potential in how teachers are using technology in classrooms today.
