  • 6. For me, Ive found other technologies to serve in place of webquests. I primarily use Moodle for my class. Its structure, not to mention its online interactive features, allow the students to take full advantage of the internet (assuming thats your goal).http://www.classroom20.com/forum/topic/show?id=649749%3ATopic%3A77255

  • 8. I think Web 2.0 is, of course, a piece of jargon, nobody even knows what it means. If Web 2.0 for you is blogs and wikis, then that is people to people. But that was what the Web was supposed to be all along. Tim Berners-Lee, August 2006http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/podcast/dwi/cm-int082206txt.html

  • 37. What WebQuestideas do you have? Let’s work together to draft it here and now
  • 38. New Era WebQuests Use Web 2.0 tools for collaboration, not just for ease of publication or because it’s cool Make that collaboration an integral, important part of the process, not just an afterthought Ideally, choose Web 2.0 tools that mirror what happens in the world of adults
  • 39. What about Flipping? WebQuests are tailor-made for flipping your classroom. Self-contained and self-explanatory Doing part of the Process at home enables access to sites your school might block Class time spent on other parts of the Process involving face to face interaction
  • 40. What about Common Core? WebQuests from their earliest conception were all about higher level thinking They are more at home now than in the era of No Child Left Behind Tasks need to be chosen to align with the new standards but it’s not as big a stretch as it was for older standards
  • 41. http://www.ocde.us/CommonCoreCA/Pages/Habits-of-Mind.aspx
  • 42. What about 1:1 and iPads?  WebQuests are perfect for 1:1  During the Process, students can be accessing information that’s different from what other students are reading, then work in groups bringing each perspective to the table  WebQuests fit nicely on a 10 inch screen!
