In this section, give background information on the topic and, introduce key vocabulary and concepts which learners will need to understand to complete the tasks involved. Here you should present a scenario and context for playing out the tasks in the WebQuest and it should be a fun, engaging and creative to draw the learners in. This section should be used to introduce the topic of the TikTok Video or Podcast, rather than explaining what a TikTok Video or Podcast is:
Here you go! You are finally 18 years old! Old enough to vote, have a driving license, be responsible for your actions and… legally aged enough to have a drink in a pub! You waited for this moment since a looong time!
To celebrate this milestone, your friends Simon and Julia organized a surprise party at Julia’s parents since they are away for a couple of days. You showed up at Julia’s waiting to have a formal dinner with her parents and were actually welcomed by all your friends ! What a great surprise, what a great idea, what a great night! You had so much fun, you danced a lot until the end of the night, had a couple of beers and enjoyed yourself so much!
The next morning, you call Julia and Simon to thank them again and tell them how lucky you are to have friends like them. They are so happy they managed to surprise you but they both tell you that they have a terrible hangover, they had more than a couple of beers and they regret it now.
You understand and actually think about the party, you have noticed several at-risk behaviours among your friends and feel concerned. You see your friend John in the
afternoon and let him know about your thoughts. He agrees and suggests that you work together to raise awareness about this topic.
This section explains clearly and precisely what learners must do, it should be motivating and interesting and where possible, it should include activities that contribute to the development of skills that they will use in their daily lives. Guidance should be given on how to present findings; for example, podcasts or TikTok videos. In this section you should describe the length and topic of the podcast or TikTok video to be produced. You can also assign roles within the team developing these resources in this task:
John and yourself decide to meet at the café to discuss this idea further. John suggests that you create a TikTok video to raise awareness among your peers on drug and alcohol use. You think it is a good idea. You start to discuss how you could do it in order to have a real impact on your peers. You want to share knowledge and not be judgmental. The idea is to help your friends, not judge them! John agrees with you.
