Abstract

This presentation will outline the E-hotseat technique used for facilitating the development of primary school students' questioning skills and understanding of character traits in relation to plot development in narratives. Theoretical perspectives behind the development of E-hotseat will be presented. The pedagogy which informed the selection of the Web tools used will be discussed focusing on the affordances of these tools to satisfy pedagogical aims and in particular for the development of critical thinking. Resources used in the technique will be presented with demonstrated screen shots and Web links. Preliminary results will be discussed.
