Scaffolding Preservice Teachers' WebQuest Design: A Qualitative Study
Wang, Feng; Hannafin, Michael J.
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v21 n3 p218-234 Dec 2009
This study examined how participating preservice teachers reported their perceptions and use of different scaffolds provided to support their WebQuest design. Sixteen preservice teachers participated in a succession of course activities designed to guide WebQuest design and development. Results indicated that while participants followed, adapted, and combined many scaffolds as they designed their WebQuests, they discounted other design supports as redundant, unnecessary, or too time-consuming. Implications for research and practice are described.
