Phase Two - local schools working together

With the success of the first round of pilot projects, we are now extending the model by inviting more schools in each of the three pilot areas to take advantage of the skills gained by the initial pilot schools. A trainer/mentor in each of the hub schools will act as the local mentor for similar groups in local schools who wish to undertake their own CABER research project. Schools have more flexibility in their choice of curriculum themes, and will be given the opportunity to join the scheme in order to gain access to the means of training and support necessary for successful project outcomes. In encouraging the use of digital media production tools in the classroom, the CABER Project provides the means by which school students can take an active role in documenting their local history as well as acquiring the skills necessary to produce rich media resources in support of their curriculum studies. This will surely result in community-wide benefits, too.
