On the way back to Cairns from Yungaburra (in the Atherton Tablelands), I was listening to the Founder of Voiceless - the animal protection institute and recognised that this would be a great resource for anyone creating a WebQuest! Don't forget that one of the perspectives could be an animal. Students would need to use their emotional intelligence and you would have to carefully select the student who would take on the role of an animal - but it could also mean that the student could be very passionate about this role!

Ideas on how to use News topics as WebQuests

James Cook University and WebQuests

by frances 10. August 2009 18:03

On Friday, I gave a lecture to 3rd and 4th Year Student Teachers at James Cook University Cairns studying under Professor Neil Anderson.

It was a wonderful experience with enthusiastic students all ready to make a substantial WebQuest as part of their assignments in their course. It will be great to mentor them and have another lot of Australian WebQuests for other teachers to use.
