The learning outcome
This quest gives students in the EFL classroom
a chance to become familiar with Delphi one of the best-known archaeological sites in Greece. Throughout the quest
students learn about greek ancient history and they also work together on decision making tasks. Students learn how
to distinguish important from secondary information and how to evaluate information. Because their final product is the result
of collaborative work, students learn how to share what they learn, how to organize their work and be responsible for their
own learning. Time management is also important. There is also a competitive aspect in the quest since at the end students present
their projects to the class and they all vote for the best.
