CLNs are learning environments in which educational technology is used to help create a community of learners who build knowledge together The central question of the project was: How can effective knowledge building in CLN�s be supported in European primary and secondary education? This research was conducted by 11 senior researchers and 15 junior researchers from 5 countries (Belgium, Finland, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands). Almost 600 students from primary, (age 10-12), secondary (age 13-16) and vocational education (age 18-24), and 25 teachers from 20 schools participated in this project, experimenting with different kinds of software.
