I like Gary a lot, even though our styles are worlds apart. We do agree on a lot of things and disagree on a few. Maybe because I've been teaching pre-service teachers for decades who have to get a job in the system as it exists, I've been inclined to adjust my work to focus on what's possible in the screwed up schools we have today. Gary, on the other hand, fills a real need by going beyond what's acceptable today and talking about what schools really ought to be about. Heidi did a nice job of discerning the difference between us.

Librarians are my favorite species! They are under-appreciated even more than teachers. The world would be a lot better off if schools and everyone else took advantage of their smarts.

Thanks Bernie. We librarians appreciate the appreciation!

Abraham Lincoln's Crossroads

Abraham Lincoln's Crossroads | K-12 Web Resources - History & Social Studies | Scoop.it

Abraham Lincoln’s Crossroads is an educational game based on the traveling exhibition Lincoln: The Constitution & the Civil War, which debuted at the National Constitution Center in June 2005.

The online game is intended for advanced middle- and high-school students. It invites them to learn about Lincoln’s leadership by exploring the political choices he made. An animated Lincoln introduces a situation, asks for advice and prompts players to decide the issue for themselves, before learning the actual outcome. At the end of the game, players discover how frequently they predicted Lincoln’s actions. A Resources Page keyed to each chapter provides links to relevant Websites on Lincoln and the Civil War, permitting students to explore issues in more depth.

A fantastic set of lessons using resources from the British Museum, the Tate, the Natural History Museum and others. The WebQuests are formatted with lots of pictures and animation, unlike the text-heavy norm. Worth exploring to use directly or to get ideas from!

As the author points out, most WebQuests don't render well on the smaller screens of mobile devices. I'm working on some responsive templates that will address that.

Larry Ferlazzo is a smart guy fighting the good fight to make schools better than they are. This piece, though, makes me a little bit ill. Just putting scavenger hunts and WebQuests on the same page is like putting lunch meat and sushi together in an article about good eating. Yes, they each have their place, but let's not muddy the waters by talking about what they have in common!

Of course, Dave Jonassen's criteria were just a gleam in his eye when the first WebQuests were hatched. It's great to see that the model makes sense retroactively. In 1995 I was just going with my gut. Dave's criteria are greatly useful. He is already missed!
