Discussion for WebQuest Page
Danea Farley (Faculty)
I use this site in one of my courses in which students actually write and then present a WebQuest. The model has been around for quitre a while, but the new technology tools, ever-changing online resources, and the opportunity to include the 'creativity' level of the 21st century Bloom's Taxonomy makes this old topic new again.
Concern: Occasionally the matrix returns items that are only tangentially related to the search terms.

Bernie Dodge first introduced us to WebQuests in 1995 and they are still a relevant technology integration strategy today. Teachers in one-to-one environments can assign inquiry-based activities that can be completed in a timely manner. The five sections of a WebQuest (Introduction, Task, Process, Evaluation, and Conclusion) are easy to understand and can promote higher level thinking. Teachers can search http://webquest.org for more information on WebQuests.
WebQuests require Internet access and a current browser such as Firefox or Google Chrome.

WebQuests are a great way to enhance student learning, especially since students are so technologically savvy.
The links are absolutely wonderful and colorful. The materials are so easy to use, especially for novices.
Carol Edwards (Faculty)
This is a good site for learners and teachers who would like to utilize the Web as a tool for teaching and learning. The information about the WebQuest is easy to understand and follow.

Easy to understand instructions for the beginner making a webquest.

in one of my classes that I am taking this semester, I used a webquest and I
thought that it was a very interesting way to teach students how to browse the
internet. I thought that the information that it supplied was accurate and that
it was very educationally significant. I think that webquests should be used
in all grades. It helps students with the ability to think about where else
they could go to find information, while giving them guidelines so that
unwanted websites don't show up. If this was used correctly it would enhance
teaching and learning in the classroom greatly. I thought that the way this
website was set up was very good. It has direct links that took you to where
they said they would, rather than getting lost and having to back track like

about WebQuest. It is of good quality, and it has a good setup. It has a lot
of useful information that would be great for aiding in learning. One down fall
to this website would be that they get most of their information from the
internet, and most of the information on the internet could be false statements
because anyone can post anything on the internet. But overall this website
could be very helpful.

were pre-service teachers, about WebQuests. The students were instructed to
evaluate the site and the Webquests for their educational value in a K-12

of high quality. The trouble I found was that many of the webquest links were
not working for some reason. Teachers could use these sites in their classrooms
tomorrow! They are well organized, engaging for students, and knowledgably
structured to promote learning. I generally found the ones prepared by teachers
better constructed than those prepared by college students. This is reasonable
considering the teachers would have more experience working with children and,
therefore, would be better equipt with an understanding of how children learn.
Expectations were better represented.

up a WebQuest. The content is very good and the site is easy to use. I
recommend this site to anyone setting up a WebQuest.
