Daft Doggy, which has appeared on several “The Best…” lists, is now being added to another — The Best Places To Create (And Find) Internet Scavenger Hunts & Webquests.
The tools on that list for use in creating Internet Scavenger Hunts & Webquests originally were only ones that could be used without registration — I just figured that ease of use would be an important criteria. But, after thinking about it some more, it’s clear that Daft Doggy also deserves to be on that list.
You have to register in order to use it, but it only takes seconds. And the benefits make it worthwhile.
Daft Doggy lets you easily create a slideshow of websites, and all the links on those sites are “live” in the slideshow. But the key advantage that it offers over some of the other tools on that “The Best…” list is that you can also leave written and audio instructions for what students should do. That ability makes it particularly useful for English Language Learners — both for listening and for speaking if they use it to create their own Scavenger Hunts.
