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.
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.
If you are in a hurry, you may try InstantWebquest, a web based software for creating WebQuests in
a short time. When you use InstantWebQuest, you will not need any of writing HTML code or using any web editor software. InstantWebQuest creates all the necessary files and puts them into the server
free. Hosting is FREE!
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.
