Based on the findings from Phases 1 and 2 of the project, the research team created an initial prototype schema to be utilized by approximately 75 teachers convened in Washington DC for the Pearson Summer Institute, "Mission Possible." Each week was designed to investigate the ways in which teachers identify, analyze and extract digital resources within the SI collection and how they respond to particular tool sets provided by the prototypes or model sites.

The following presentation illustrates the prototype schema.

Each week ensured 3 full iterations of a development and deployment methodology combining the accelerated delivery of Agile software development, with the prototyping and revision methods of a spiral model. In its core essence, educators were shown the prototype and given a set of tasks, with the entire project team observing how they interact with the prototype to complete the task. Observations were recorded by researchers on annotation keys (see Research Tools and Data Collection Instruments page). After a short amount of time interacting with the various micro-prototypes, teachers were given time and space to document their own findings as individuals via survey instruments (see Research Tools and Data Collection Instruments). This information was reviewed, and analyzed by the team each day and summarized weekly. The development team worked on rapidly integrating these new ideas into the prototype, with clear programming and design tasks to be accomplished within 24 hours for re-delivery to the teacher teams the next morning. Summary documents from this analysis can be found under Project Findings.
