"I'm going on a WebQuest!"

Component 1: Introduction

1.   Introduction: The introduction gives the students background information and motivational scenarios.  The goal of the introduction is to make the learning experience something the students want to do and something that they will have fun doing.  The goal of the motivational scenario is to engage students and get them excited about the activity they will be participating in.  For example, you can give students roles to play:  "You are an explorer planning a trip to a faraway country," or "you are an astronaut planning a trip to the moon."  Adding "introductory" types of information and material throughout the duration of the WebQuest keeps students fully engaged.  Don't depend on technology alone to convey the meaning of the lesson.  Use other media and guest lecturers to add realistic components to the on-line experience.
