Webquests: A Strategy to Address the "Content" Dilemma in Teacher Education Coursework
Fero, Marie
Journal on School Educational Technology, v4 n1 p8-11 Jun-Aug 2008
The purpose of this article is to propose the use of technology integration in elementary and middle level education courses, specifically, the use of WebQuests as vehicles for the infusion of content knowledge in preservice and in-service education courses. Observation in content area teaching methods courses found that teacher candidates often had deficiencies in content areas. The purpose of the research was to demonstrate that the teaching of content can be integrated with the teaching of methodology. The article is a meta-analysis of the literature that addresses the issue of technology use in teacher education coursework, with an emphasis on the inclusion of WebQuests as part of course requirements. The review of literature combined with a priori research found that teacher candidates increase content knowledge when the development of WebQuests are included in teaching methodology courses.
