Abstract


The digital environment is transforming teaching and learning in our schools. Educators must be ready to move beyond substitution and to take advantage of the power of digital resources for truly impactful teaching and learning. Exemplary twenty first century teachers should not only transfer their knowledge and skills, but also prepare students for life beyond the classroom as wise digital citizen. One of the ways to familiarize the students to digital world is by implementing online media to teaching and learning. This paper proposes the development of Constructivist-WebQuests media to bring the students to digital atmosphere during the TEFL course. This media will allow students to do authentic learning, directed discovery, connect ideas to personal interests and desire to know, investigate beyond simple fact gathering, analyze answers from multiple perspectives, construct new understanding, express the new ideas through a variety of formats, and stimulate them with cooperative and constructive learning. This online media was developed by using Research and Development model suggested by Thiagarajan, Semmel dan Semmel. This model includes three phases, namely (1) defining, (2) designing, and (3) developing. To reach the goals, this study involved experts validations. Hence, before doing the field try out, this media had been revised based on the evaluations, comments, and suggestions from the experts.
