I stumbled across this while procrastinating– er, “pre-thinking,” that’s it– my grading for this evening. WebQuest, in the old days (the late 90’s), was a kind of interesting resource for using the web to teach, mostly K-12, and mostly for folks who weren’t doing things too complicated on the web. Like just about all education resources– especially “lesson-plan”-style materials– some of it was cool, some of it wasn’t.
Anyway, I hadn’t thought much about it one way or the other for years until I came across this entry about WebQuest, blogs, and wikis. I found this via this link at the Kairosnews blog. Yet another good potential link for the 516 class.
