Hi,
Webquests are inquiry-based constructivist learning situations. Now that
I've impressed everyone with the jargon; it's an internet research project.
Students usually work in teams to solve a 'fuzzy logic' problem (such as
whether the Mona Lisa should be copied and sent on tour to major cities).
The key to this approach is to let students synthesize what they find on the
web into their own original thoughts and presentations. Webquests usually
take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to complete.
