WebQuesters at NECC

About 45 WebQuest fans gathered for a Birds of a Feather session at NECC in Atlanta, Monday. Cara Hagen and Scott Schwister blogged the conversation which ranged from "bring back the matrix" to ideas for improving the site. Questions covered the gamut. How can you make a good WebQuest for primary students? What do you think about kids creating WebQuests? How will WebQuests incorporate Web 2.0 technologies? Several volunteers stepped forward to help with peer reviews of submitted WebQuests so that the search page will become more useful. A good time was had by all!

Makeover for the WebQuest Sites

The original WebQuest site at SDSU and the portal at WebQuest.org have been falling into disrepair lately. Things were hard to find, links were going bad, and the whole site had a turn of the century look to it. All that is changed as of today.

Please come visit the new unified interface for WebQuest.org. There are new sections on articles and research about WebQuests, a section on WebQuest creation, and the best WebQuest search engine you'll find anywhere. I think you find it a much more complete and useful resource whether you're a novice educator or an experienced teacher educator.
