WebQuests for Teachers

A presentation for teachers on why to use WebQuests.

Doing WebQuests is a meaningful learning experience.  Students learn about different subjects in a fun and challenging way. Today WebQuests are also done at university so that students experience learning at its highest level.  As a teacher you are welcome to experience the quest by trying the following WebQuests. You may do them individually or as a group. 

Have fun!

Students need motivation to learn. Integrating technology into the classroom by means of WebQuests is a great way for students to get involved in real life learning. Nellie Deutsch has developed WebQuests for students and teachers. Feel free to use them in your classroom.

A course on WebQuests

Today's students need constant challenges in order to focus. WebQuests are problem-based learning activities that engage students in learning. Engage your students in experiential (hands on) learning activities that promote social skills via teamwork, higher order critical thinking skills via inquiry and problem-based learning, and technological skills via the Internet and Microsoft applications. Motivate your students to become lifelong learners by using WebQuests. In this course you will learn how to create and use WebQuests in your classes. In addition, you will learn how to facilitate students as they work online.

I decided to create my own WebQuests to suit my students and their needs. I used literature themes and running as my incentives. The Last Spin and The Giver were part of the students' curriculum so it was an easy choice. I intend to continue writing WebQuests. If you would like me to write a WebQuest or help you with yours, let me know.

Bernie Dodge has come up with an incredible opportunity for teachers to create their own WebQuests in an easy to follow step by step format in a virtual arena called QuestGaden.
