  16. 16. Why the Web? According to Bernie Dodge: “There are at least two reasons that the World Wide Web is an exciting development for educators: • Using the Web breaks down the walls that separate schools from everything else. • Using the Web forces active learning.” 16
  17. 17. Active learning In Dodge´s own words active learning involves: «putting our students in situations which compel them to read, speak, listen, think deeply, and write. Active learning puts the responsibility of organizing what is to be learned in the hands of the learners themselves, and ideally lends itself to a more diverse range of learning styles.» 17
  18. 18. WebQuest structure Introduction 1. Introduction: orientation & motivation 2. Task: what? 3. Process: how? 4. Resources: which information? 5. Evaluation: which criteria? 6. Conclusion: what have you learnt Web resources Task Proccess Evaluation Conclusion & and how to consolidate? Teacher’s page 18
