What is a WebbQuest?

"A WebQuest is a scaffolded learning structure that uses links to essential resources on the World Wide Web and an authentic task to motivate students' investigation of an openended question, development of individual expertise, and participation in a group processthat transforms newly acquired information into a more sophisticated understanding. The best WebQuests inspire students to see richer thematic relationships, to contribute to the real world of learning, and to reflect on their own metacognitive processes."

This webquest is designed for teachers to allow them to independently investigate how they can incorporate interactivity into their lessons, develop expertise in searching and implementing these activities, and develop a complete understanding of how technology can reinvigorate their classrooms and inspire their students.
