We have just had a new Short-cut WebQuest Authoring Tool (SWAT) logo created by terrific designers at Bytes'n Colours - Alex and Fiona! Thanks so much!
Our SWAT area is FREE and it is where teachers can come anytime, from anywhere and use this area to create a great WebQuest.
We provide mentoring to help teachers create a WebQuest, NOT a series of web-based activities, or, a research assignment, or, a find and tell activity, or, a scavenger hunt like so many others.
If you want to use our SWAT, please go to http://www.webquestdirect.com.au/swat/ and register.
What does this logo mean?
This logo has many meanings for us!
1. It is teachers being free to create their online lessons without having to rely on anyone or any HTML
2. It is teachers jumping beyond "Reinventing the wheel" and sharing their great WebQuests with the world. We want teachers to "Stop reinventing the wheel" as we all have a heavy load as it is teaching! Let's share our expertise, lessons and particularly our great WebQuests.
3. It is teachers being enthusiastic, passionate about their work
4. We chose the colours green and yellow as Edward de Bono's Green colour signifies CREATIVITY! and Yellow an OPTIMISTIC point of view. Creativity in the development of the WebQuest but also in the solutions students will have to find in solving the messy problem presented in the WebQuest. The yellow signifies being positive about the process - both in creating and using a WebQuest! You will marvel at the results!!!!
