Web Quest to be used for changes: Time Before Time Travel Agency
This webquest is already very organized and set up in a student friendly manner. There some changes I would make. They will be organized according to section:
navigation/flow: I might try to find a way to link the pages without having to click on the sides. this will add more easy to navigating the webquest as a whole.
motivational effectiveness: the intro. is not very lengthy. I will probably add a little bit of creative encouragement to try to captivate the students' interest better with the initial paragraph.
cognitive effectiveness: the introduction does not particularly build upon students' prior knowledge. It somewhat gives an overview of what they will be encountering with this project, but I think that could be explained in slightly more detail so they will have a better understanding.
resources: some of the resources seem very advanced or repeat the same information. i might reduce the number of links to that the students are not overwhelmed with facts, and yet still have enough information to create their project.
A Bit of an Introduction
Welcome to my Instructional Technology Blog! This particular blog was initialized as a requirement of my EDUC2201 course. I'm very new to the concept of blogging, so I am looking forward to all that I will learn throughout this semester. I'm currently an Elementary Education major; however, I would ultimately like to teach education courses on a collegiate level. Whether I end up in an elementary or college class, I will need to have a good grasp on the technology available to me as an educator. I hope to gain that necessary knowledge from this course so that I will be more readily able to offer my students helpful technological tools to enhance their learning.
