A comparative study of their\r\ngoals leads to the conclusion that a complete curriculum should aim to student-s acquisition of the abilities to navigate and search for\r\ninformation and additionally to emphasize on the evaluation of the information provided by the World Wide Web. In a constructivistic knowledge framework the design of a course has to take under\r\nconsideration the conceptual representations of students. The following paper presents the conceptual representation of students of eleven years old, attending the Sixth Grade of Greek Elementary School about World Wide Web and their use in the design and\r\nimplementation of an innovative course.","references":"[1] J.
