Updating the WebQuest Taskonomy

Though things have been quiet here on the WebQuest News site, there's lots going on behind the scenes. Some major improvements in QuestGarden are being beta tested right now with more to follow soon. Conceptually, though, the most interesting development is a redesign of the taskonomy. I'm thinking of it more broadly as a taxonomy of authentic constructivist learning tasks and as a list that can be helpful in designing lessons other than WebQuests.

It's not yet fully baked, but you can learn more about it by reading the transcript of last night's Tapped In session. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
