Using Web Design with Pre-Service Teachers as a Means of Creating a Collaborative Learning Environment
Educational Media International Volume 42, Number 2, ISSN 0952-3987
This study involves a group of over 300 third-year Bachelor of Education students attending St Patrick's College of Education, Dublin, Ireland. Working in groups of not more than three, the students completed an assignment to create a WebQuest. On construction of the WebQuest the students were asked to reflect on the experience, considering issues such as collaboration, cooperation, planning, decision-making, time management, project direction and design. They were also asked to reflect on the impact of the exercise on their own learning styles and its influence on their concepts of teaching and learning. Finally, they were asked if the exercise had affected their ideas of how to use the Internet in school and if they envisage using WebQuests as part of their teaching in the future. Their reflections were facilitated by a questionnaire. Results of the project have implications for future course design.
