The first integrated R&D educational technology project funded in Greece, led by C.T.I. with the lab one of the partner organisations. It involved:

a) the original co-design between the lab and the CTI group of the E-slate platform and the development (by CTI) of the first prototype ('Opendoc' - Mac version),

b) the co-design of the mathematics and geography components (Logo, turtle, canvas, variation tool, 2-D variation tool, map), and the development of the corresponding first prototypes,

c) the engagement of five schools who established an 'investigations' course based on the use of exploratory software in their daily program progressively including 'Turtleworlds', the first E-slate microworld

d) the academic research into student collaboration and teacher practice during this course.
