What's a webquest??

Web Quest

"A  Web Quest is an inquiry-based activity where students are given a task and provided with access to on-line resources to help them complete the task. It is an ideal way to deliver a lesson over the web. Web Quests are discovery learning tools; they are usually used to either begin or finish a unit of study (Teachology)."

There are several ways to complete a web quest. You can use Weebly or Google Sites.  
Once you have chosen a web site  builder. You need to have a few different sections: introduction, task, resources, conclusion, and a teacher's page. 

The introduction shares the beginning information and the task describes what the students will be doing through the activity. The resources are any and all possible videos, stories, forms or whatever else they may need to finish the project. The conclusion is what the ending outcome will be, along with a teacher's page that shares standards and other ideas to accommodate for a variety of learners. 

On the above web quest, I used accessibility and record myself using Screencastify to be able share what I want the students to do or reading the story for my students who struggle with reading. 

A web quest could be something that you can use when you are absent for the day or creating a project that students can complete in the classroom or at home. 

I hope you enjoy and have a great rest of the week!!

Pocket Extension

Pocket Extension


What is it?

The Pocket Extension was formerly know as "Read it Later."  The extension lets you do just that.  While surfing the internet for information, videos, lessons, or anything else you search for, you can simply click a button to save the link to your "Pocket."  The extention would be great for students to use when working on research projects and teachers to use when planning lessons.This is very similar to the old "Delicious" website many of us used back in the day.  It also keeps your bookmark bar clear of any extra bookmarks.    

What does it look like?


How do I get it?

Go to this link or simply search the Google Store for "Pocket."  

For more information

Go to the Pocket website.
