The purpose of this study is to investigate story telling-retelling as a learning strategy to facilitate meaningful learning on environmental education in web-based learning environments. Because story telling is a way of making meaning of the individual and social life, it can build a richer context so that learners can enhance environmental ethics through indirect experience. For the purpose this study develops a learning environment via computer networks, which enables learners to understand the natural world and to build environmental awareness with storytelling at the elementary level. It was designed for facilitating narrative inquiry with individual and collaborative learning through online activities. From the theoretical and practical review, this study suggests design strategies for building a cyber learning environment with story telling.
