Online Submission, Mevlana International Journal of Education (MIJE) v3 n2 p68-76 Aug 2013
The aim of this study was to examine the perspectives of primary school students on the use of WebQuests in learning. There were nine graduate students, twenty-six 4th grade and thirty 5th grade pupils involved in this study, which took place over eight weeks in a graduate course. The graduate students designed and developed their WebQuests as a project based on their interests. The researcher gave a questionnaire, including open-ended questions, to both graduate students and primary school students, who stated their perceptions of the development and implementation of the WebQuests. The researcher only examined the views of the primary school students on the use of WebQuests in learning. The study shows that both 4th and 5th grade pupils found something very interesting about WebQuests, which enhanced their motivation to learn. The students also commented that they played, had fun and learned using WebQuests. Appended is Table 1: Frequency Table Based on the 4th and 5th Graders' Response. (Contains 1 table.)
