Developing autonomy, confidence and competence in a variety of curricular contexts with a range of media is a central concern for environmental education. We believe that technology plays a crucial role in this. This paper describes the research and development of a multimedia CD ROM for primary aged children which links the world of the classroom with 'their' environment. It suggests that the processes of this research and development not only generated an impressive technological resource but contributed significantly to the professional development of the team and their interaction with learners.
