So you have Internet access, but what are you going to do with it? A WebQuest is an increasingly popular Internet activity that teachers can use with their students for meaningful educational purposes. The model was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge and Tom March. They define a WebQuest as "an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by the student is drawn from the Web".
The purpose of this web page is to introduce the teacher to the idea of using WebQuests, to show how a WebQuest can be designed, and to showcase WebQuests that are on the Internet.
