iTunes apps, Podcasts and WebQuests

by frances 8. April 2010 10:39

I'm at the Australian Computers in Education Conference [ACEC2010 in Melbourne] after presenting yesterday on WebQuests and Problem-Based Learning. It has been great to catch up with colleagues and to be stimulated with all the new and exciting technologies presented. 

One of the presentations was about iTunes apps - there are SO many that can be used within WebQuests!!! And most of them are free.

This is wonderful news for teachers and students alike!

Go and have a look at the Podcasts from Universities around the world that you can use as part of the "Background Information" within the Introduction to a WebQuest or within each of the roles - mine you this would be only for students in Years 9 - 12 [and beyond].

There are also unbelievable apps like Tripit (free) that can be used on an iPhone [yes well it does require this expensive product or a tablet] but that said, it has some very interesting applications for all those boring Travel "WebQuests" [who also need to have a messy, complex problem at their heart as well]!
