Teaching Tips and Tricks (Examples)
Use a Smartboard, Projector, or a LCD Panel
Use a Smartboard, Projector, or a LCD Panel to show your students
exactly what to do while you project the computer screen onto a white
screen. iwebquest.com's teaching staff often introduces a webquest by
positioning the page so that the Essential question is showing.
Students can then discuss any past experiences or background knowledge
that students have. If our teaching staff is using the Smartboard they
will write thestudents ideas on the screen to print off and give to them
later. If our teachers use the projector or LCD panel, they will
use Inspirations to record their ideas in a quick, organized, and visual
way. Later, this can be printed and given to students.
Copy/ Paste/ Print
iwebquest.com's teaching staff often copy the introduction and the
activity instructions to paste into a Microsoft Word document. he
teachers will then print a copy off, make Zerox copies, and pass them
out. That way kids have a clear idea of what we are doing.
This saves our teachers a ton of time because we no longer have to worry
about procedural questions.Our focus is on facilitating the discussions.
you permission to copy and print any of my materials found within our
webquests to use with students in conjunction with our webquest. This is
for educational use only.***
Books! Good ole' books. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in
the technologies that we forget that books have great information in
them and are sometimes easier to use than a website. iwebquest.com's
teachers always have a cart of books relating to the topic they are
studying. Hit up the local library, get kids to bring in books, or
purchase books from our Great Books Collections.
Our teachers have some kids that always go straight to the books while
others hit the computers. When we are beginning our teachers let students
learn in a style and manner that is comfortable to them.
If you have any suggestions or strategies that really
work for you while you use webquests, please share them by e-mailing
