WebQuests

WebQuests are structured, online group assignments that lead students through the process of completing a multi-step project. The WebQuest website has examples and templates. Rather than using one of the website’s templates, you may use Microsoft PowerPoint’s kiosk feature and create a WebQuest that way while following other examples from the website.

WebQuest pros:

  • students work collaboratively
  • students gain research/computer skills
  • students get to use technology…which is exciting!
  • the entire process and expectations are laid out clearly for students

WebQuest cons:

  • takes a long time to set up
  • computers are necessary
  • links that you put into your template may not be active when students need them
