The Internet provides educational opportunities for students in citizenship and art education based on abilities and interests. Teachers can use networked communication packages to promote citizenship discussion, use software simulation of social situations, and allow learners to produce citizenship materials. This article reviews and analyses a large number of potential web sites for these activities. The use of the web could provide meaningful, authentic, and information-rich contexts and promote student’s participation in activities contributing to high-level thinking processes. Project-based learning/teaching with the web offers a wide range of opportunities for citizenship education, and could stimulate the integration of groups with different cultural, religious and other backgrounds.
