Planned contribution to ISDDE 2008

I would like to talk about a professional development program which will be held in many countries of Europe (LEMA). I could explain design principles and first reactions of teachers and first results about data evaluation. Additionally, if needed I could explain principles which lead to the development of materials for low achieving students.
