Developing a WebQuest

     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)
