James Cook University and WebQuests

by frances 10. August 2009 18:03

On Friday, I gave a lecture to 3rd and 4th Year Student Teachers at James Cook University Cairns studying under Professor Neil Anderson.

It was a wonderful experience with enthusiastic students all ready to make a substantial WebQuest as part of their assignments in their course. It will be great to mentor them and have another lot of Australian WebQuests for other teachers to use.
