This week in Tech Tuesday we'll spend some time talking about Webquests and how webquests may be incorporated into core curriculum.
In a nutshell, a webquest is an inquiry-oriented online learning tool. They can last one class period or one month becasue the duration is set by the teacher. Bernie Dodge is a leader in webquest design and we'll spend some time on Tuesday navigating through the Bernie Dodge Webquest website.
That's all Tech Tuesday is - 20 minutes of spending time with technology.
In case you aren't able to attend - Here are a few excellent starting points that allow easy searching for webquests applicable to curriculum.
