Integrating Technology into the Developmental Mathematics Classroom: A WebQuest
Salsovic, Annette
NADE Digest, v3 n1 p21-25 Spr 2007
Although the WebQuest has been around for several years, it appears that not many educators are aware of it, or know how to use it. Thus, it is important to not only expose developmental educators to the use of this strategy, but also to help them realize how they can easily implement it into their curriculum. The use of a Webquest integrates technology into the classroom, while utilizing a learner-centered activity and a constructivist approach to learning. When using this strategy, the students benefit from cooperative learning, discovery learning, and a high level of engagement while practicing Internet skills. The purpose of this article is to explore the use of a WebQuest in the developmental mathematics classroom, and give an example.
