    • A webquest is a research activity for students using the Internet as an information source. Other sources (e.g. books, CD-ROMs) can support the work too.
    • Webquests can be done individually or in groups, and should require the student(s) to research, analyse and synthesise information.
    • Today we’ll make our own webquests.
  • 2. Webquest: Tasks
    • The main tasks today are:
      • Use the resources to learn more about what a webquest is
      • Work in pairs to build a webquest based on this template
      • Present the webquest to the whole group and explain what you learned

  • 3. Webquests: Process
      • Use the resources provided to find out what a webquest is, and what makes a good webquest – go online, or use the sites saved on your computer.
      • Find a partner, and together think of a topic that would be useful as a demonstration for your students.
      • Plan your webquest. Search for some resources on the Internet and/or other locations (e.g. CD-ROM).
      • Customise this template using the resources on the CDs to build your own webquest around the topic you have chosen.
      • Present the webquest this afternoon in the workshop, explain what you learned and how you might use webquests with your students.

    • If your web access is slow or unreliable, use a tool like WinHTTrack (available on the free software CD-ROM) to copy web resources to your local server/PCs
    • You can use this .ppt file as a template to make new webquests
    • The younger your children’s age group, the more visual elements you should use
    • There are many helpful elements to use on the multimedia CD-ROM
