21st century learning environments made semi-easy

WebQuests and Web 2.0 Tonight on EdTechConnect

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. He'll show examples of how the latest web-based tools can be embedded in a solid pedagogical structure to make good lessons great.

You have to register to attend by going to https://discoveryed.webex.com/ec0600l/eventcenter/enroll/join.do?si...

Hope to see you there!

Hi, Bernie. I listened to your webinar and agree with your ideas about the integration of emerging technologies. I am working on a dissertation study that looks at ways to integrate emerging technologies into the WebQuest model and thus be more engaging to millennial learners.

The primary research question for the study is: How does infusing the WebQuest model with Web 2.0 tools within a Moodle-based virtual learning environment impact student engagement and support the goals of inquiry-based learning?

A secondary question is: What are the pedagogical guidelines for integrating emerging web-based technologies with the WebQuest model?

I would appreciate your thoughts. Also, is it possible to get a copy of the PPT that you used. I would like to cite parts of it. With all of the tech issues of the webinar it was hard to follow:)

Thanks for your time!

Hi Bernie. I enjoyed your presentation this morning (OZ time)and I agree with your view that just because the webquest concept might have been used by "Eve to home school Cain and Able" does not mean it is not a relevent "structure" for 21st century learners. In fact including the Web 2.0 components only enhances the pedagogy involved. Webquests are still a very powerfull method of directing a learner but also allowing scope for the student to engage in HOTs and constructivist learning.
