Dino ButtonThis is a link to a slide show showing a Grade 1 Knowledge Forum Database. The topic was dinosaurs and it shows the basic use of Knowledge Forum -how to create a view, how to create a note, how to do a build-on, and many other functions.

It also shows you four different user-generated graphical representations of the same notes illustrating the multiple perspectives, multiple literacies, and teamwork enabled by CSILE/Knowledge Forum.
You can find more information on CSILE/Knowledge Forum in the following book chapter:
