WEBQUESTS and COLLABORATIVE LEARNING in the LANGUAGE CLASSROOM

Technology

Imagine your students learning English, Spanish, French, German or any other world language in fun, creative and collaborative ways using the Internet!  In this course you’ll learn to make WebQuests where students can collaboratively create the ideal vacation and propose it to a prospective tourist in German, or try to convince the International Olympic Committee to host the next Olympic Games in France in French.  Maybe the Board of Directors of a local museum has asked your students to create a Day of the Dead exhibit that both educates and dazzles the public.  Through the use of WebQuests, the student’s imagination is the limit. WebQuests allows students to learn-through-doing, or what we affectionately call task-based learning, while using the language authentically. 

Developing and implementing WebQuests in any classroom is a great way to engage students in a fun and exciting way. WebQuests can be created online, in paper form, or even in a PowerPoint presentation. Students are presented with a problem, issue, or ‘task’, and they are guided through various internet resources in order to collaboratively create new knowledge. The ways in which a teacher can choose to use WebQuests are nearly endless, which makes them a great asset in any classroom, not only the Language classroom, as they are applicable to many types of learning objectives.  Come learn how to create your own WebQuest that fits your style, curriculum, and unit.  At the end of this course you will be able to create a WebQuest you use with your classes the very next day.  Great Professional Development class for teachers to use for pay increment and/or toward their required credit hours. Appropriate for K-12 educators.

Participants will need to purchase one (1) book.
