|Abstract:||The study reported here encouraged students to learn about water resource by using a case scenario on local water problems. After each group of students studied the case, students were asked to search for more information on local water resources, water quality, and comparative quality of water. A local sage was invited to give a talk to the students who later used the knowledge gained to discuss the way to solve the case problems. Students reported their ideas to friends as well as constructed their own webblog to present what they had learned. Students' presentation, report, webblog, concept map, pre-post test, and observation were used to assess their achievements from this lesson. The average score was 75.38 from 100 points indicating that most students achieved the objectives of the lesson. They could build knowledge from the case, search for information on their own, and discuss with friends as well as present the understanding via the webblog. Some problems still need to be solved such as allowing for more time and providing computer each for the student who did not own one. © Common Ground, Jongdee To-im, Chakpet Tianchai, Nantawadee Tianchai, Watcharee Ketpichainarong, Piyachat Jittam, Namkang Sriwattanarothai, Pintip Ruenwongsa.|
