Learners in these various workshop environments were given the opportunity to respond to a stimulus and use materials/technologies that facilitated new forms or new thinking. This principle of transforming learners (teachers and their pupils/students) with experiences that was outside of the more comfortable assumptions about practice led towards different questions being asked and solutions being sought. The youngest pupils in these workshop collaborations were generally seven to eleven and the learning environments were generally schools, colleges, universities or more neutral spaces (field trips, residential courses, virtual environments). It is not possible to provide in this short summary paper examples of all of the various frameworks for these experiments but it is hoped that the accompanying contextual images will capture the range and complexity of the engagement.
