Webquest Workshops
Melanie Zibit
February & March

A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The model was d! eveloped in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March.

Introduction to Webquests

In this introductory workshop, you will learn about Webquests – what they are, how to locate pre-constructed Webquests, and ways to manage your K-12 learners and resources. You'll explore and assess different Webquests based on attributes such as efficiency, higher level thinking, technology skills required, and team building. You'll also locate several Webquests that you can use to support a topic related to the curriculum area you teach.

Please send an e-mail to with your name, school, and the date o! f the workshop you want to attend to:
