    1. 1. EDUC 526: Webquest Project
    2. 2. Webquest
    3. 3. Webquestd. (from Wikipedia) A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. These can be created usingvarious programs, including a simple word processing document that includes links to websites.
    4. 4. Standard lesson design
    5. 5. Standard lesson designLearning Learning Learningobjective activity assessment
    6. 6. Standard Lesson Design
    7. 7. Standard Lesson Design In traditional lesson design, one starts with a learning objective,designs teaching activities, and then designs the assessment.
    8. 8. Standard lesson design
    9. 9. Backward Standard lesson designLearning Learning Learningobjective assessment activity
    10. 10. Backward Lesson Design
    11. 11. Backward Lesson DesignIn backward design, steps two and three are reversed; the means of measuringlearning outcomes are designed before the instructional activity.
    12. 12. Webquest Learning
    13. 13. Webquest Learning ObjectiveMiddle school students will developresearch habits that include using aseries of questions to evaluate thequality of information sources on theinternet.
    14. 14. Webquest Learning
    15. 15. Webquest Learning AssessmentAs a class, students will discuss whatmakes a good source, what questionsthey can use to identify qualitysources, and why it is important to doso.
    16. 16. Webquest Learning
    17. 17. Webquest Learning ActivityWorking in pairs, students will puttogether a research project, taking time tosearch for quality sources, checking thevalidity of their partners sourcesaccording to a set of standards, andconsidering whether their sources areappropriate for their projects audience.
    18. 18. Information overload?
    19. 19. Introduction
    20. 20. IntroductionThe internet is a wonderful tool! However, sometimes using it as aresearch tool can seemoverwhelming. You must alwaysevaluate your sources carefully,especially when researchingcontroversial topics.
    21. 21. Introduction
    22. 22. IntroductionThe more information that becomesavailable to us, the more important itbecomes to learn how to identifyquality information and weed outsources that present bias ormisinformation. 
    23. 23. Introduction
    24. 24. IntroductionBy the end of this quest, you will havecompleted your own research project,and you will know more about whatmakes an online resource "good." Youwill also be able to talk about thekinds of questions you should askabout information you find on theinternet.
    25. 25. Task
    26. 26. TaskWorking with a partner, students willresearch one of six civil rights leaders.Each team will put together a biographicalvideo and a powerpoint presentation orwritten report on their chosen leaderslegacy and impact ("then" vs. "now").Throughout the process, they will evaluateand question the validity of their internetsources.
    27. 27. Process
    28. 28. Process1) Students will use Choosito WebSearch to find five good sourceson their topic. They will compilean MLA-format list of theirsources.
    29. 29. Process
    30. 30. Process2) Students will trade lists withtheir partner and criticallyevaluate each others sourcesaccording to a list of questions.They have the option of using aprinted checklist that is includedin the webquest.
    31. 31. Process
    32. 32. Process3) Students will put together twopresentations: a biographical videofor a younger audience and apowerpoint or written presentationfor their classmates.
    33. 33. Process
    34. 34. Process4) Students will participate in anin-class discussion on how theyevaluated their sources and whythe process is important. They willbe encouraged to share theirresearch strategies withclassmates.
    35. 35. Process:Web site evaluation questions
    36. 36. Process:Web site evaluation questionsLook at the URL. Different domain types canhave different uses as sources, and some aremore suspicious than others.  Is the page froma commercial (.com), non-profit (.org), oreducational (.edu) domain?  Is it a personalweb page?  A blog? Who is the author? What are theirqualifications? What do other people have tosay about the author? 
    37. 37. Process:Web site evaluation questions
    38. 38. Process:Web site evaluation questions Is the page current? When was it last updated? Are sources documented? Does the page include links to other reliable sources? Beware of dead links!
    39. 39. Process:Web site evaluation questions
    40. 40. Process:Web site evaluation questions Why was this page written?  Is it meant to inform?  To persuade?  To slander?  Is it meant to be a joke or a parody? Are there other questions that you ask yourself as part of your evaluation process?  Make a note of them for later.
    41. 41. Teacher-led conversationasks students about how they checkedtheir partners sources.Checklist worksheetadapted fromUniversity ofCalifornia-Berkeley
    42. 42. Teacher-led conversationasks students about how they checkedtheir partners sources.Checklist worksheetadapted fromUniversity ofCalifornia-Berkeley
    43. 43. Evaluation
    44. 44. EvaluationStudents will be evaluated on thequality of their work according to arubric included in the webquest, butthe main assessment of learning willtake place during the classdiscussion.
    45. 45. Evaluation
    46. 46. EvaluationCan students use the questions/worksheet independently to evaluateonline sources?Do they understand the importance ofusing "good" sources?Did good sources produce goodresearch?
    47. 47. Resources
    48. 48. ResourcesSaved basic searches in Choosito atthe appropriate grade levelWorksheet that student can useOnline MLA citation creator fromOregon School Library InformationSystem
    49. 49. Notes on Design: Technology
    50. 50. Notes on Design: TechnologyThe main technology students will useis the search engine. The lesson isdesigned to build upon existingsearch skills using critical thinkingskills.
    51. 51. Notes on Design: Technology
    52. 52. Notes on Design: TechnologyStudents will also use software thatshould already be familiar to them inmiddle school: word processing,powerpoint, and video making.
    53. 53. Notes on Design: Learning theory
    54. 54. Notes on Design: Learning theoryThe lesson is designed with constructivistprinciples in mind; students bring whatthey already know about internetsearches, and use the tools they alreadyhave to acquire new ones.They learn what works for them and why,before participating in a teacher-leddiscussion.
    55. 55. Notes on Design: Learning theory
    56. 56. Notes on Design: Learning theoryThe lesson allows students multipleways to apply what they have learned,and culminates with an opportunity toteach others.
    57. 57. Notes on Design: Challenges
    58. 58. Notes on Design: ChallengesPre-authentication remains an issue. If we cant create authenticity (real-life tasks) in this context, do created tasks like this one have sufficient relevance to engage students? If the projects dont seem relevant to the student, but they achieve the learning objectives through real-life research, will students retain the lesson?
