The work of Chris Argyris has influenced thinking about the relationship of people and organizations, organizational learning and action research. Here we examine some key aspects of his thinking. Army eventually becoming a Second Lieutenant Elkjaer
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the WebQuest model. Watch this space for announcements of some new resources coming later this summer! WebQuests and Web 2. This webinar conducted by the Discovery Education Network features a discussion about how blogs and wikis fit into the WebQuest model. You can view the archive here.
Contact Bernie Dodge, PhD. Research About WebQuests There are many graduate students world wide conducting thesis and dissertation research on the effectiveness of WebQuests. Some of these studies have made it into print as well, though the number of data-based studies in refereed journals is still small.
There is not, at this point, any edited bibilography available about WebQuest research. Here, though are some places to get started to begin your own research.
Google Scholar tracks many kinds of publications ranging from research journals to practitioner magazines and online papers.
As of this writing, there are over articles cited that use the word WebQuest. To narrow it down some, try adding the word thesisor dissertation to the search terms. A search of the ProQuest dissertation database reveals the studies described below.
You may access the complete studies in most cases through a ProQuest account at your university. A case study of the use of an inquiry-based instructional strategy with Reading responses face negotiation theory minority at-risk, middle grade students Swindell, James Wilson, Jr.
The study suggests that providing a structured, active, hands-on, and technology-rich cooperative classroom environment for at-risk African-American males produce these positive results: Looking through the lens of language socialization Talamantes, Mona Loya, Ph.
I employed the lens of language socialization to analyze the specifics of the actions taken by, and the meaning-perspectives held by, the students in order to understand what sense they made of this computer application and how the WebQuest activity, as well as the computer itself, mediated student social action and learning as they worked together on the computer.
Three themes became evident as students worked on the WebQuest: Findings showed that within each of these themes of interaction, language served as a medium of socialization to norms, preferences, and expectations that reflected local and nonlocal forms of social organization and culture.
Through this socialization, continuity and coherence were maintained, in the face-to-face encounters between the students as well as in the larger contexts of school and society. Students competently communicated and interpreted the meaning indexed in the language usage of their group, as their acts and stances instantiated particular social activities and identities in order to achieve particular social ends.
The technology mediated this process by providing a context in which the students could enact learned forms of social interaction, and by providing the means through which they could demonstrate and construct their social and academic competence within the group.
Recommendations based on the findings of this study are provided regarding considerations for the make-up of student groups, computer set up, and considerations for WebQuest use specifically. Integrating the Internet in the K classroom: An online self-paced introductory course Tran, Debbie, M. This course introduced teachers to some strategies of integrating the Internet in the K-6 classroom.
These strategies, which had been successfully used by many educators, were organized into 4 modules. Within each module, integration strategies were presented along with successful stories, an interactive quiz, and a self-assessment practice.
Four teachers from an elementary school volunteered to test and evaluate the course. They filled out a survey to rate the course in 4 categories. The course received an overall positive rating of 3.
Although they agreed that these strategies had educational values, they stated that only the strategies in the modules Integrating Web Resources and WebQuest were practical and applicable to their classrooms.
This project report concludes with recommendations for future developers of online instructional systems. Participants were preservice teachers enrolled in five sections of an undergraduate technology integration course. Analysis revealed that scoring patterns across all six social learning style preference categories were a weak predictor of WebQuest role choice.
Qualitative analysis of responses to open-ended questions and statements provided further insight to potential variables that may have influenced group work and WebQuest role choices.
Implications for effective instruction are included. In addition, this study reported the relationship between student attitudes and student perceptions toward the use of the WebQuest module. A quasi-experimental research designed was employed for this study. A pretest and posttest reading comprehension assessment were administered for the both groups.
The treatment group received a researcher developed WebQuest learning module embedded in a traditional EFL instruction, while the control group received traditional text-only EFL instruction.
After the posttest, the treatment group received an attitudinal survey about learning attitudes and perceptions toward the WebQuest learning module.This book provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental components of the negotiation process and the challenges that face negotiators.
