After searching a proper webquest for foreign language learning, I found it is pretty limited to Grade 9-12 and adults, and to French and Spanish. There are some Chinese webquest, but the links are not complete and the levels are usually too high for K-5. Here is one model, which might be a good example for building up K-5 foreign language webquest, though it is not designed for specific language.: http://zunal.com/process.php?user=30447
One thing language teachers can do is that… Continue

A tag cloud or word cloud (or weighted list in visual design) is a visual depiction of user-generated tags, or simply the word content of a site, used typically to describe the content of web sites. Tags are usually single words and are typically listed alphabetically, and the importance of a tag is shown with font size or color. Thus both finding a tag by alphabet and by popularity is possible.

Just to let you know there are (at least :-)) 2 courses at the Utrecht SummerSchool that might interest you: one on designing for WEB 2.0 (including an introduction to the LanguageQuest quality criteria) and another specifically about the didactic use of Interactive Whiteboards. And participants who would like to extend their visit to the Netherlands can apply for an additional period of campus accommodation at 125 Euro (!) per week.

WebQuest and Semantic Web are issues of increasing study and practical application. However, the use of Semantic Web as a resource to improve the content of WebQuests, it is not very explored. The WebQuest technique has as one of its goals to lead the students in their search through the content previously selected by the teacher. The Semantic Web, in turn, proposes solutions that help in the selection of content. The WebQuest Manássio proposes a solution for combining the techniques of… Continue

Just found out about this CoP. Good to find people still actively sharing knowledge on (the use of) WQs and education. I also checked out the discussion on whether the webquest concept is getting outdated. IMO, that is rather a non-issue as the whole WQ concept is about providing a structured approach to integrating web technologies in learning processes. The format is perfectly suitable to include the use of new applications and developments.
My focus in the WebQuest era has… Continue

I'm new to this forum, and I can see you have an interesting dialogue about the use and application of WebQuests. I started using them about a year ago in my EFL classes and they have been a great resource. Right now I am interested in researching how WebQuests can help improve the students' critical reading skills. If there is any information you know about this topic or any insight you can give me on this, I would really appreciate if you drop me a line!
It's great to… Continue

That's the topic of a webinar sponsored by Discovery Education tonight (4pm Eastern Time). Here's the description:
The WebQuest model has been around since ancient times: 1995. The web has fundamentally changed since then with the invention of blogs, wikis, podcasts and social tools of every stripe. Has the model kept up, or are WebQuests a relic of the 20th century? In this webinar Bernie Dodge will describe how WebQuests and Web 2.0 go together like chocolate and peanut butter.… Continue
