weSPOT resources for teachers
weSPOT is a European research project on inquiry based learning. As we are a research project we are highly interested to work together with practitioners and learn about the actual use of our tools. The project develops the weSPOT toolkit over a period of 3 years and the software is free of charge and available via Open Source Licence (MIT Licence, GNU GPL).
