WebQuests: A good use of the Internet in the classroom
Bernie Dodge pioneered the concept of a WebQuest as a means of integrating technology into the classroom. Dodge felt that the WebQuest model allowed students to spend more time using information from the Internet and less time searching for it. A successful WebQuest points students to the information, but leaves it to the students to extrapolate meaning from that information. Perhaps the best reason is that it shows students that the Internet can be used to find information from any content area, as long as you know where to look.
The goals of this site are to:
- present and explain the pieces of a good WebQuest.
- provide annotated examples of good and bad WebQuest implementations.
- provide basic webpage help and resources for creating your own WebQuests.
