Faisons du shopping - A French WebquestFriday, April 01, 2016
Youppi! Madame Mancuso a gagné à la loterie!
Ok. Poisson d'avril!
While I didn't really win the lottery, it does provide a fun premise upon which I based a WebQuest I created as part of the IICT course that comes to an end today. This was my first attempt at creating a WebQuest using zunal.com and, while I was hesitant at first that I wouldn't find it very user-friendly, I actually ended up enjoying it. I am beginning to see the potential of using WebQuests in my classes. I just wish there was more flexibility in the site design and that I wasn't limited to only one WebQuest using the free version. Here is a shortened url to my WebQuest "Faisons du shopping!":
Nonetheless, I think I had more fun putting together the models for the each of the task components using Google Apps for Education. (Blame the Google educator in me!) I found an AMAZING template on Slides Carnival thanks to Sylvia Duckworth's presentation on GAFE today at the OMLTA Spring Conference. There is a selection of extra vector illustrations of people that students can choose from to customize their presentation. Adorable!
my tendency towards procrastination unforeseen time constraints, I quickly threw all of this together at the last minute and wish I had more time to tweak everything since it's far from perfect. I am thinking I would post this WebQuest on my Google Classroom and have students create copies of the models, such as the budget below, and submit them via Google Classroom so I can keep track of their progress.
While I may not have won the lottery, it sure feels like I won after having taken this course. I have learned so much from the course instructor as well as the other participants and am able to walk away with fantastic resources and practical ideas.
