The project involves the collaboration of teacher educators, both school and university based, involved in the training of secondary science teachers. The purpose of this project is to generate training materials and increase expertise within school / university partnerships that can be drawn upon, both within existing partnerships and the wider community, to support PGCE secondary science trainees in their use of web-based material within their own teaching.
