A WebQuest designed for use with pre-service and in-service teachers
Some folks say the Web is a dangerous place for kids. Others say the Web is a great place to learn. There is a measure of truth in both these seemingly opposing points of view. This WebQuest will help you sort out the fact from the fiction when it comes to weaving the Web into your K-12 curriculum. You'll think about issues involved with learning online and figure out ways to deal with them. You'll also discover a bunch of tools that will help you effectively integrate the Web into your K-12 curriculum. Careful planning and preparation on your part will lead to your students looking for learning everywhere all the time, since the Web will soon be available to them all, every waking hour.
To accomplish this WebQuest, you're going to work as a team. Each of you will have a different job to do, but you'll all come together at the end to share what you've learned, both with the other members of your team and with the class as a whole.
Everything you accomplish while working this WebQuest will help you fulfill the requirements of the National Education Technology Standards (NETS) for teachers. These standards are the outcome of an International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Project in collaboration with a distinguished group of partners and contributors through the U.S. Department of Education's PT3 grant program.
