Latvian Education Foundation presents methods and tools to reach comprehension and develop creative thinking. The Web page www.goerudio.com contains wordings of conceptions and patterns under training standards, as well as appropriate models/examples created by students and teachers, which interprets mentioned conceptions and patterns by use of various daily well-known or in other way absorbed conceptions and patterns. The Web operates according to accumulative principles. The important issue is that models/examples are created by students and are more close to their understanding, views, and customs that increase interest and psychologically are closer than ones created by teacher. Accordingly, it leads to continuous update of the study tool that allows fastening and improving comprehension--essential in learning process. Teacher gets opportunity to discuss these models, thus, not only to create new models, but also to encourage students to creative thinking within specific topics. The whole above approach together gives understanding, and hence, interest, participation, and motivation to acquire the material. Users have wide opportunities to evaluate models by voting, and to follow the growth of viewing popularity. Which also allows us to measure the level of interest of students. Models frequently show the scope of problems in concrete subject. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
