CULTURA is a unique Web-based, cross-cultural project which allows students to collaboratively construct understanding of a foreign culture, particularly those aspects that are ususally invisible to them, namely cultural values and attitudes. It calls for two groups of students in similar school settings to work simultaneously on the same materials, analyze them and then, exchange their own viewpoints. The goal of the project is to develop a new methodology for learning about another culture - a methodology which is not based upon being "taught" what the other culture is like, but which is built upon an interactive process that involves interactions with multiple authentic materials, various media formats and multiple partners. This multiplicity of sources and voices is designed to lead users, under the skillful guidance of their teacher, to gradually construct their own web of interpretations and continually refine their understanding of the other culture.
