  4. Carol T Says:

    Great tips can’t wait to go try them and to have my students on a scavenger hunt.

  5. William King Says:

    I like the idea of creating a scavenger hunt for my Special ed. students. I really could use a workshop in creating the scavenger hunt. I found that for me there was too much information for me to handle. Do you have any video documentation exampling the creation of a scavenger hunt?

  6. Sheridan Says:

    This was awesome. I can’t wait to create a webquest or a scavenger hunt. I love the idea of using it as a center as there never seems to be enouch computers to go around at the right times.

  7. C. Santori Says:

    Webinar was well organized. I especially liked the ideas for differentiation with scavenger hunts. Right now our school only has a classroom subscription to BrainPop and BrainPop Jr. so we mainly use our SmartBoard for the students to view movies and do the quizzes. Thinking about how I could set up 3 computer stations so students could work in groups to do a scavenger hunt on BrainPop. Think this would work with a small class size.

  8. Kelly Shaw Says:

    This was a really fun seminar. I enjoyed learning how I can set up my own webquests and scavenger hunts. I didn’t realize there were all of these different tools you can use to create your own, as well as differentiating them. I am planning on taking a more in-depth look to some of the sites such as Glogster and Zuna. I do not currently have a BrainPop account, but do use the free links when possible. I think you gave some great ideas, I especially thought it was creative to use the insert Moby page as a scavenger hunt. I can’t wait to try these. Thanks! Would it be possible to get a certificate of participation? Thank you!

  9. Tatum Says:

    Thanks for so many fabulous comments and feedback! We are glad you all could join us. We will email you your certificates of participation by tomorrow afternoon.

    C. Santori - Great idea to do this in stations, it would work well with a small class or large class. If you have more than 3 computers, you could set up more stations set up at trusted educational sites. Then create a scavenger hunt sheet where students have to switch stations after a certain amount of time to hunt for the information on the different sites. Lots of great things you can do!

    Will - We will isolate a good video resource for you and post it here. If you want to try a WebQuest, the Zunal site really takes you step by step in the template and in details describes every step along the way. sitehttp://www.zunal.com/index.php. Also, the resources that will be emailed out to you will give you additional great information, but we will do our best to find you a great video resource.

    Kelly - great to have you with us. You can still do a hunt with the free movies available! So glad you enjoyed. Kristen Brooks from Woodstock Elementary in Georgia came up with the awesome Moby poster Scavenger Hunt! She is trying it out with a co-worker and all of the 4th and 5th grade students.

  11. Jennifer Mink Says:

    I never knew how to do a webquest or scavenger hunt! Thank you all so much for the useful information. I also learned about Glogster.

  12. Sherry Richards Says:

    Great information on webquest and scavenger hunts. Can’t wait to try it with the students. I think they’ll love the idea of adding more technology into their learning. Thanks so much for the wonderful information and ideas! Keep it up!

  13. Mary Says:

    Enjoyed the webinar. Great ideas! Thanks.

  14. Pat Sumara Says:

    Enjoyed the webinar, Will try a scavenger hunt soon.

  15. jpeters Says:

    We’re new subscribers; just happened upon the webinars site; watched this “Webquests” recorded session and appreciate the MANY tips & suggestions! Can’t wait to share info with principal and faculty!

  16. Tatum Says:

    Jpeters- It is great to have you! Check out all of the recordings in our archived webinars and please join us on Wednesday’s live if you are able to attend. We also have a great “new subscribers” section on BrainPOP Educators, check it out! Welcome to BrainPOP!

  17. Katie Says:

    I really enjoyed Wednesday’s webinar. Thank you. I realized during the webinar that I have created more scavenger hunts that I actually called webquests! I am glad to be more clear on the difference and can’t wait to try both using the resources discussed! Thanks too, for the follow-up email!

  18. Alicia Says:

    I loved her differentiation ideas! I also liked the way that she showed the difference between scavenger hunts and webquests!

  19. Tatum Says:

    The differentiation scavenger hunts were pretty cool! You can accomplish the same learning objectives, but just adjust the forms so all different learners can participate! Glad you enjoyed the webinar, Alicia!

  20. Kalee Says:

    I love the idea of using glogster with my students! This would be great with the scavenger hunts! Thanks for the great ideas!

  21. Kristy Crawford Says:

    I think these would be great first weeks of school activities for my high school students. In addition, I think that it would be interesting to have students then create webquests as well.

  22. Adam Taylor Says:

    Great Webinar!! I have always stayed away from doing webquests or scavenger hunts because of my percieved difficulty of creating them!! I had no idea that there were so many sites out there that have done a lot of the work for you such as Zunal and Glogster. I am definitley going to check out those sites in more depth. I want to try and incorporate BrainPop into the webquests and scavenger hunts since the students really respond to it!! Thanks!!

  23. Tatum Says:

    Adam - There are tons of resources out there to make planning and creation super simple. When you create a hunt or quest, please share it with us so we can share it with the whole community. Thanks for your great feedback!

  24. Stephanie Says:

    I have used webquests in the past and enjoy making them and using them. I had not however thought about using a scavenger hunt online but I love the idea. I also was amazed by Glogster! My district is hosting seminar on Glogster and at first I thought I wouldn’t attend because I was unfamiliar with it and did not understand its uses but now after viewing this webinar I am signing up for that seminar. I am so exited! I am going to spend time this summer creating webquests and scavneger hunts using BrainPop and the other tools provided in your webinar! Thanks so much!!!

  25. Tatum Says:

    So awesome! Please share your BrainPOP webquests, scavenger hunts, or glogster creations with. Let us know if there are any lessons learned from the Glogster seminar that we can pass on to other BrainPOP Educators.

  26. Barbara Hall Says:

    I have used Brain Pop for the last three years but learned new ideas on how to use other feature besides the movies. My students like the movies with Tim and Moby. I usually use the quizzes at the end. I am going to try having the students do a scavenger hunt next year. Thanks for the tips.

  27. Anna Leah Manikan Says:

    Very informative webinar! I especially liked the part where Jessica offered ideas on differentiation. Will try out all your ideas soon!

  28. Gayle Says:

    This is my first time here in the webinar at Brain Pop and i have to say it was very informative and i have really learned a lot about web quests and scavenger hunt , even though i’m just a student pursuing a career in teaching this would really help me in my future profession . Can’t wait to try out all the other ideas you gave and thank you so much for the tips.
