Using the Internet for Scavenger Hunts - Adapt for Corporate Training?

There's a website designed for kids that you should explore for interactive exercises for corporate training.

The mission of the USA-SOS Internet Challenge is to promote cyber citizenship among students by engaging them in a fun, age-appropriate, competitive online program where they learn how to safely and responsibly use the internet.

One of the activities is a scavenger hunt. Use the Scavenger Hunt Document to help you find important tips. Click an icon to open a new web page with information. Then take the Post-Quiz.

Note: You could create fake web pages with the information so you can control the content.

Free Webinar: The Truth About Social Learning 9/14

Speaker: Jane Bozarth, Ph.D., eLearning Director of the State of North Carolina

Session Description:

"Social learning" and "informal learning" are among the training industry's hottest phrases these days. But there's so much confusion over what they mean, and what they mean to those of us in the business. A few truths:
  • Social learning isn't new.
  • Social learning isn't necessarily ‘managed', ‘launched', ‘controlled', or ‘measured'.
  • People in the workplace are learning all the time - without us.
  • Those people likely don't think of what they're doing as "learning".
