A WebQuest is an Internet based
activity that usually covers several curriculum areas. WebQuests focus on using
information rather than looking for it, students are prompted to go beyond just learning
facts. Students usually compose creative work to support thinking at the levels of
analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
For example, students may be asked to
create a multimedia slide show that develops and supports a point of view.
Another example could be students creating a newsletter to summarize their knowledge gathered on a topic. (The WebQuest Page)
