WebQuest Sites Rebooted

For the last four days, I've been spending all my creative time on updating the WebQuest web site. I've wanted to do that for years and thought that redoing it as a Drupal site would be the way to go. That, of course, laid a whole extra layer of necessary learning and tweaking and the thought of all that work just kept it from rising to the top of the to-do list.

Then I got a note from a colleague whose opinion I value. She very politely pointed out how dated the sites were getting and how it gave the impression that WebQuests were soooooo 20th century. That was enough to push me into action.

Instead of Drupalizing the whole site, I hunted around for some opensource templates I could adapt, which led me to Andreas Viklund's site.

Four days later, I've arrived at this. I'm pretty pleased!

I like it, although I thought the other one was pretty decent too.

I'm still surprised that many teachers have never heard of a webquest. Unbelievable!

I am 41 and haven't really ever investigated the net and its associations. Too busy training horses and having children, perhaps! Now doing a uni masters unit in Australia on online learnng. Really enjoying the discovery! I am one of those teachers who didn't know much, but then, there is a lot to know ! Onward !
