Ages of learners
The easiest way to create a WebQuest with thousands of users. It is a web-based software for creating WebQuests in a short time without writing any HTML codes.
Launched in May 2001, ZUNAL provides a free service for Preservice and Inservice teachers, and faculty to create WebQuests and share information online with others. By encouraging collaboration among our users, we provide a safe environment for students to learn, and teachers/faculty to educate. Since our launch, we've been in a process of continuous improvement and have relied on feedback from our users to refine our website. We hope to see you around on ZUNAL often!
Professor Bernie Dodge of San Diego State University defines a WebQuest as an inquiry-oriented activity that uses resources on the World Wide Web. WebQuests pull together the most effective instructional practices into one integrated student activity. These Web-based projects use World Wide Web sites to help students develop problem-solving and decision-making skills. WebQuests are interesting and motivating to teachers and students. An effective WebQuest develops critical thinking skills and often includes a cooperative learning component. Students learn as they search for information using the Web, following a prescribed format that focuses on problem solving and authentic assessment. A well-written WebQuest requires students to go beyond simple fact finding. It asks them to analyze a variety of resources and use their creativity and critical-thinking skills to solve a problem. WebQuests help students analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information. There are two kinds of WebQuests, short term and long term.
