Apart from anecdotes, is there research that demonstrates their effectiveness? What are the strengths and drawbacks, in both academic and affective terms? Can they be successfully incorporated into a religious school setting? What content is being developed for this purpose? Join an open forum that will include educational experts, practitioners in the fields, and content providers.
