Module 4 Scenario – WebQuests 2.0

Learning Scenario

Suppose students eagerly adopt opinions, argue positions and debate solutions to challenging problems. Now imagine that they have even built up a body of evidence from which to launch their case?  So what’s the problem?  What happens when students might be willing, even eager, just not able? WebQuests began in 1995 as one of the first good ways to use the Web for learning.  Even as technologies have changed solid pedagogies endure.


Set up a scaffolded learning activity (AKA “WebQuest”) that uses an authentic scenario, open-ended questions, a range of perspectives and rich resources to help students transform information into understanding. You can do this with a Web page template or an “unfolded” process using Web 2 tools.

But before we get to this, let’s check the Agenda

Module 3 Scenario – ClassPortals


Imagine that your students develop a sense of mastery and
enthusiasm for Learning to Look but want more.  Participating in
and even facilitating the activities themselves works, but too often
the pressures of an ongoing curriculum curtail pursuing further
inquiry.  What if you had a facility to support ongoing, sporadic
investigations on main interests and themes that have emerged
through Learning to Look activities?


By using a Weblog as a platform, you could empower students as authors to post, comment on and track how topics might evolve over time.  Hey, this sounds like this could develop some good Habits (of Mind)…
