ThinkQuest -Help Guides and Video Tutorials
ThinkQuest News for WV Classrooms!
You’re a classroom teacher with students interested in the International Category. How do you get them started?
- Determine if your school has a ThinkQuest account. Many West Virginia schools do have accounts already, especially if any of its teachers have attended TIS, SETLA, or TLI in the past 3 years, so ask around. If you still don’t know, contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll check your school’s account status.
- Login and set up your personal website in ThinkQuest (see the tutorial below).
- Create 1 project that will be your “index page” for student projects (see tutorials below).
- Create a one-page project “shell” for each student that will be participating in the International Category. (see tutorials below)
- Connect with a teacher somewhere else in the world that has a student who wants to work with a student in the United States. (That’s the part ThinkQuest will help you with! Details soon!)
- Have your students watch the STUDENT TUTORIALS to learn how to create content in their project space.
- Encourage communication between your student and his foreign partner through email, skype, chat, etc.
