Kara Whittingham's project page. Kara is a Teacher at Randwick TAFE (Technical and Further Education), part of the Sydney Institute of Technology). Kara's students work collaboratively on a project and post the results on the wiki. Of special note to those who are interested in enhancing "retention" and "goal setting" is that the project requires the students to investigate the services the school provides to assist a student who would like to get information about a career choice or path. During the project, therefore, the students learn critical information that will help them plan and achieve their own future goals.
