Introduction

Zunal is an online website that allows you to create webquests. It is basically a template format that you follow. It is a great tool because it gives you guidance so that you do not feel like you are creating something huge. It also allows you access to webquests that others have created if they have made the webquest public. They have webquests for every subject in all of the different grade levels(See below). It is very user friendly. I chose to share this tool because in business classes one of the attributes that I am trying to teach my students is to be resourceful. This is a professional skill that needs to be nurtured and developed. Creating webquests can do just that. It gives students the freedom to go find answers on their own, but at the same time gives teachers the confidence that students are utilizing the sites that they have deemed appropriate for the task at hand.

Incorporating into the classroom

I plan on having my students participate in the webquests that I on Zunal. I think that webquests are a great way to break away from the traditional style of learning. I believe that we learn more when we discover the need to know information and also when we have a hands-on learning experience. I also think that it is important for students to learn to be flexible with learning new things. Webquests may take them to a website that they have never been on before and they have to learn how to navigate the website to gather the information that they need. This is a professional skill set that is important and sought after. Also since Zunal is online students can work from anywhere they have access to the internet.
