WebQuest

The WebQuest website offers various resources for teachers looking to use the WebQuest model to teach with the Web. A WebQuest "is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web." The model, developed in 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March, has received significant attention in recent years. The bulk of the website is located in the Readings and Trainings Materials section, where teachers can find the paper that started the WebQuest project, as well as various articles providing different perspectives on what the WebQuest is all about and how to proceed to create your own lesson using the Internet. Examples of WebQuests created by teachers and a template with sections such as Introduction, Task, Process, Evaluation, Resources, and Conclusion help guide you through the process. The Portal provides updates on WebQuest news (mostly workshops and conferences) and a link to the Top rated WebQuests, as well as some "Middling" WebQuests, and new ones that have not yet been rated. The WebQuests in their database as well as various articles can also be searched from the Portal. The Forum section is a place for "conversations about using and extending the WebQuest model."
