Web Quests (Zunal)

A WebQuest is defined by Bernie Dodge at San Diego State University as "an inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information that students interact with comes from resources on the Internet."

One of the best ways to use technology/internet w/ students is to send them on a "web quest". While there are a ton of quests out there for students to go on, ideally it would be better to have them go on one which "you" created. Doing this, hasn't always been easy w/ the amount of planning time and then having to incorporate all the different resources that goes into a web quest.

However, a new resource is available for free which lets teacher's create their very own web quest online, and then either post it online, or download it as a PDF/print to use in their class. Plus, w/ it being online you can track statistics almost like Google Analytics.

I highly recommend checking out their home page and clicking on view demo...
