“A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information that learners interact with comes from resources on the internet” (Dodge, 1995)
Webquest activities allow students to be autonomous learners, and to be authors of their own knowledge as long as the activity last.
Its aim is to let students employ their time searching, using and transforming the informacion they find on Internet. We can choose any topic and create a fascinating webquest and allow student to learn about it.
The elements of a Webquest are: Introduction, Aim, Process, Source, Evaluation and Conclusion. In this way, students are led to different steps of the activity having as a final result not just information but knowledge.
I uploaded a document Miss Sandra Carbajal, Language teacher in St. George, prepared for us. You will find information about Webquest, different activities and examples. It is of great use!!
