Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Our Blue Planet - Section 4: Webquest: Surface Water Features and Landforms


Using a webquest as a way to introduce concepts:


- Students work at their own pace

- They have an intimate connection with the content by interacting with satellite images and maps.

- Opportunities to look at different websites that include a variety of maps, some interactive, satellite images and photos.

- Making meaning through collaboration and guided research

- I can modify and change the webquest at any time.

- It is easy for the kiddos to access

- Allows me to save on line resources in one place


- Computer glitches

- I cannot check in with all the students for each task

- Learners not always taking the time read the task directions

- Takes time to build the webquest

- Linked websites can be taken off line making some tasks obsolete; need to maintain the webquest
