Abstract

The intention of this paper is to show relevant issues (resulting from theoretical and empiric research) about how Microworld can be used to elicit the building of knowledge and to encourage collaborative learning. For that purpose, we have been investigating how to manage information overflow and develop incentives to collaborative learning using Microworld through WebMapQuest - projects of investigation with virtual maps. In this paper, a brief conceptual approach is discussed, major contributions difficulties and future trends are presented.
