Curriculum 2.0 Wiki
A wiki put together by Justin Medved and Dennis Harter to explore the essential question:
How does an information and technology curriculum stay relevant and meaningful in the 21st Century?

They were recently on Jeff Utecht's 'On Deck' Podcast talking about their roles as Technology Learning Coordinators (TLC's).

They have great ideas about working from Essential Questions down so that the main idea is a constant. Their work also seems to be very much influenced by the MYP technology design cycle.

ISB 21 Wiki
