Today’s students are constantly challenged in order to stay focused on learning tasks. They are bombarded with ongoing digital distractions that capture their attention. Webquests, founded by Bernie Dodge, are problem-based learning activities that engage students in learning that can keep students on task.
The blocks of a WebQuest are geared to engage students in experiential (hands on) learning activities that promote social skills via teamwork, higher order critical thinking skills via inquiry and problem-based learning, and technological skills via the Internet. Engaging in a WebQuest helps students become lifelong learners.
WebQuests foster teamwork, higher order thinking skills, and integrate technology into the classroom in a safe and manageable way.
