I’ve been asked to do a short WebQuest workshop. It’s been a while since I have done much with WebQuests, but I thought I’d use this blog as a starting point for my participants.
WebQuest Page: Where the WebQuest idea originated through the work of Bernie Dodge and Tom March.
QuestGarden: A WebQuest creation tool that makes it easier for individuals to build and host WebQuests.
iTeacherEd WebQuest Modules: A resource built by our iTeacherEd team on how to build and host WebQuests using HTML tools. Note modules 6-10 focus on WebQuests.
WebQuest Taskonomy: Useful ideas when thinking about how to shape your WebQuest.
Reading & Training Materials: Various information on the theory of WebQuests.
Searchable WebQuest DataBase: Search for various WebQuests.
SESD WebQuests: WebQuests from the Saskatchewan East School Division (likely now longer called this).
Energy Choices and Consequences: A WebQuest created back in the day by former classmate Peter Arthur which I often use as an exemplar.
WebQuests from U of R Education Students: Oldies but goodies.
One of my favorite resources is Dodge’s Design Patterns at http://webquest.sdsu.edu/designpatterns/all.htm
I made http://www.msfiedler.com/wq quite a few years ago. You might still find some useful things in it.
Thanks Becky. This was very timely. I also showed blogging for this session and I think students really appreciated this connectedness and immediate response. It’s great to see someone not connected in any way to this workshop leave comments in such a way … it’s really an amazing way of looking at education and the global village. Thanks again!
