Welcome to my professional development lesson, Creating a WebQuest. Designed by Bernie Dodge and Tom March at San Diego State University in 1995, a WebQuest is an inquiry-based activity in which the information the learner interacts with comes from resources from the Internet. In a WebQuest students learn to work in a collaborative environment and become responsible for their own learning--and they use technology to complete a task. There are five components used to help teachers design a WebQuest: Introduction, Task, Process, Evaluation, and Conclusion.
- After completing this course the learners should be able to:
- Choose resources from the Internet to use in a WebQuest
- Create a WebQuest for your content area
- Develop plan to implement WebQuest learning in the classroom
- Educators in Middle School (with modifications could be used in early High School grades).
- Educators interested in inquiry-based learning activities.
- Educators with limited technology skills.
- Those with limited or no WebQuest experience.
- I could create a survey to find out the amount of experience the educators have with creating a WebQuest or implementing one in the classroom.
- In addition, to how many of them include their pets in their emergency evacuation plan at home and in their school (if they have pets in the classroom).
