What is a WebQuest?

A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by the students is drawn from the Internet. WebQuests are designed to use the students' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support students' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Webquests help ensure that students stay on task while online. The model was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March and there is an extensive web site devoted to WebQuests
