This paper describes the University of Virginia, Curry School of Education's approach for using WebQuests as an introduction to methods courses. EDLF 345, Introduction to Educational Technology, provides preservice teachers with fundamental technology knowledge specific to relative content areas. After eight weeks of building upon skills, students then use their technology knowledge to create content-specific WebQuests. The WebQuests offer opportunities for preservice teachers to explore content resources and organize information within a technological context. Provided is a discussion of some of the potential connections that are made during WebQuest planning and the implications of these connections on future methods courses.
