>Internet-oriented application change and influence the ethnographic toolkit?
>- How do learning processes change on the Web?
>- What role does the Web play in different learning environments and contexts?
>- How can the Internet as a medium of
>information, communication and production exert
>a positive influence on teaching and learning processes?
>- What are the pedagogical challenges posed by

>- How does language use change on the Web?
>- Which new forms of communication and genres have emerged on the Web?
>- How can the Web be utilized as a linguistic
