Two Project Zero authors have recently received awards for their contributions to scholarly journals. Ben Mardell, a project specialist on the Making Learning Visible team, won an EXCEL Award from Association Media and Publishing for Best Feature Article in a Journal along with his coauthor, Mona Abo-Zena. The article, entitled "The fun thing about studying different beliefs is that they are different: Kindergartners explore spirituality," was featured in the July 2010 issue of Young Children, an award-winning, peer-reviewed professional journal published bimonthly by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
Lecturer Daniel Wilson, principal investigator at Project Zero, received the 2011 Outstanding Paper Award from the Literati Networks Awards for Excellence for his article, "Building bridges for change: How leaders enable collective change in organizations." Published in the peer-reviewed Development and Learning in Organizations (24:1, 2010), Wilson's article was based on work generated by the Learning Innovations Laboratory project at Project Zero.
