Introduction

Welcome to my professional development lesson, Creating a WebQuest. Designed by Bernie Dodge and Tom March at San Diego State University in 1995, a WebQuest is an inquiry-based activity in which the information the learner interacts with comes from resources from the Internet. In WebQuests sstudents learn to work in a collaborative environment and become responsible for their own learning--and they use technology to complete a task. There are five components used to help teachers design a WebQuest: Introduction, Task, Process, Evaluation, and Conclusion.

Performance Objectives

General outcomes: Through cooperative and collaborative work, participants will gain an understanding of how a WebQuest is created, how WebQuests are tools that can be used in any subject matter and will demonstrate how to apply the concepts of a WebQuest lesson.

Specific outcomes: After completing this course the learners should be able to:

  • Choose resources from the Internet to use in a WebQuest
  • Create a WebQuest for your content area
  • Develop plan to implement WebQuest learning in the classroom
