What is a WebQuest?

on Thursday, April 9, 2009

Search for the word "WebQuest" in any search engine, and you soon discover thousands of online lessons created by teachers around the world. What is a WebQuest? A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented online tool for learning, says workshop expert Bernie Dodge. This means it is a classroom-based lesson in which most or all of the information that students explore and evaluate comes from the World Wide Web. Beyond that, WebQuests:

  • can be as short as a single class period or as long as a month-long unit;

  • usually (though not always) involve group work, with division of labor among students who take on specific roles or perspectives;

  • are built around resources that are preselected by the teacher. Students spend their time USING information, not LOOKING for it.

This site provides a unified gateway to the resources previously linked to the WebQuest Page at San Diego State University and those at the portal at WebQuest.Org.

Usually, a webquest is divided in the following sections:
  • Introduction
  • Task
  • Process
  • Evaluation
  • Conclusion
  • Teacher's Page (optional)
  • Credits

  • Select a topic or theme that fits your curriculum and standards.
  • Become familiar with web sites in your content area. Start collecting by selecting and bookmarking interesting sites.
  • Select a task for your students to accomplish. If you need help or inspiration check out WebQuest Taskonomy: A Taxonomy of Tasks
  • Make a list of each step students need to take in the process of accomplishing the task you set for them.
  • Create a rubric to show students how you will evaluate them.
  • Design your web pages or use a pre-made template.
  • Upload the pages to the Internet or follow the wizard from your template.
