http://webquest.org/ What is a WebQuest? A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. The model was developed by Bernie Dodge at San Diego State University in February, 1995 with early input from SDSU/Pacific Bell Fellow Tom March, the Educational Technology staff at San Diego Unified School District, and waves of participants each summer at the Teach the Teachers Consortium.
21st century skills Collaboration: Form work teams within the class and countries. Provide some basic online resources and starting suggestions along with the Webquest. Direct teams to brainstorm a starting point to understanding the issue and then divide that list among them to begin research. After the beginning research is completed, teams share their information, discuss, and decide on the next step. Teams continue to work, share, collaborate, and plan throughout the project.
Knowledge Construction Using the Webquest and general resources, direct students to build a base of knowledge about the subject through research, sharing and collaboration. Students will use that new understanding to develop ideas about what are the causes on the poverty. Students will use that new understanding to develop some suggested solutions to the problem. The activity will include a variety of disciplines such as reading, research, writing, science, and social studies.
Extending Knowledge Beyond the Classroom The foundation of the activity is based on understanding and solving the problem of poverty. This problem exists throughout the world, and threatens both local economies, as well as global stability.
Technology for Learning Research using online resources. Use an online meeting tool such as Skype and Any Meeting tool for collaborative brainstorming. Use Power map for excel to process data and put it on the maps of the students home countries. Design a website to educate their community about poverty that could translate into solutions.
Self Regulation This activity last for a few weeks. Assessment criteria are given to students in advance. Students plan their own work.
