WebQuest

Do you know what a WebQuest is? (click here)
According to web sources, a WebQuest is "an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by students is online. By providing links necessary to complete the quest, the student is able to focus on the material rather than spend time looking for it."
I have chosen to look at a number of WebQuests for the purpose of extending my teaching base into the area of Problem Based Instruction (PBL), thus providing realistic and authentic learning activities for students.
Please check out some of the WebQuests from Zunal.com and let me know what you think. I have just listed a number of lessons that might be useful, however, I am looking into developing lessons based around the WebQuest idea for ESL/EFL. If you can help me by giving ideas, I would be very grateful...
You can leave a comment below or e-mail me at the address in my profile.
Thanks a lot in advance, everyone.

Cool website!~

When I taught EFL to middle and high school students, they LOVED webquests. I hated the unpredictable technology problems, but it is a good way to learn English. Thanks for the tips!

Welcome :-)

Hi there everyone!
Welcome to my world of ESL/EFL. A place where you can explore the world of learning English as a second language. There are many materials for you to download and use. Feel free to use the materials in a way that helps you. Every day there seems to be something new. I encourage anyone who logs on, to leave a comment or two... Looking forward to see how the site develops. I hope it helps... Mondo
