The interactive textbook teaches skills that are needed in a global world, such as interdisciplinary working, good general education, language and orientation ability, emotional intelligence, lifelong learning, thinking in global contexts, combinatorial intelligence, creativity, imagination, learning motivation and media literacy.
Internet literacy is impossible without a minimum level of personal experience in dealing with the technology. Where young people can acquire these skills? A fortuitous result of activities in their leisure time, or all systematically in school? Although we live in a media society no one explains children how to deal appropriately with the media. Through the support of the teacher, the children learn to distinguish important from the unimportant, genuine from spurious and a targeted filtering of information.
Only at the beginning the teacher structure the theme in every detail. Once infected by the spirit of research, students undertake the task of the classical fields of the teacher. Students find their own favorite themes, discover them with links, create their own knowledge planets and add them to the story. Students learn to document and to present their results in context. At the same time students complete their language and their reasoning skills during the public presentation of their project work. The design of a presentation by the use of different media, has an extremely motivating effect.
