Teacher and students decide what is appropriate
for the educational web site they will create
so that the notes they have may be written up
appropriately for their sections. Unlike a paper,
students do less writing on an educational web
site and more hyperlinking. The goal is not to
supply all the information in their own words
but to summarize the resources and point interested
persons (via hyperlinks) to those resources.
Since the web site is an educational site, not
just an informational one, it should not only
provide information, it should also attempt to
interest other students in the subject so they
will be motivated to learn more about the culture.
Clearly, here is where not only interesting content
is important but graphics, pictures, video, etc.
might also be useful. The students' text should
be brief, written in their own words and should
not be a "cut and paste" of information
copied from the web. The class might decide to
make their educational web site interactive; that
is, include such things as a pre-post quiz or
a survey revealing common misconceptions about
a culture, both of which draw the reader in. Other
ways readers can interact with the information
on the site include: inviting readers to leave
informed comments, puzzles that might provide
useful information, as well as other games with
content appropriate to the site.
