What is a WebQuest?

“A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. The model was developed by Bernie Dodge at San Diego State University in February, 1995 with early input from SDSU/Pacific Bell Fellow Tom
March, the Educational Technology staff at San Diego Unified School District, and waves of participants each summer at the Teach the Teachers Consortium at The Thacher School in Ojai, California.
Since those beginning days, tens of thousands of teachers have embraced WebQuests as a way to make good use of the internet while engaging their students in the kinds of thinking that the 21st century requires. The model has spread around the world, with special enthusiasm in Brazil, Spain, China, Australia and Holland.” (Courtesy of webquest.org )

Introduction

Pupils will undertake a Webquest at a suitable level. The results of this quest will be written up as a newspaper article for publishing. We will endeavour to work with a local journalist and again literacy, language and ICT / media skills will be needed.
