As a teacher, I have developed and used the webquests that you will find at iwebquest.com to safely bring the energy and learning resources that are available on the Internet into my own classroom.  I have seen first-hand the excitement that is created when kids learn by using webquests.  I have experienced the power of webquests to guide higher-level thinking and learning.  Using iwebquest.com, you can safely harness the power of the Internet for use in your home or classroom.

 

What are Webquests?

iwebquest.com works with dedicated teachers to develop online lesson plans, units, and projects to promote higher-level thinking skills.  We refer to these online lessons, units, and projects as webquests.  Webquests break the larger units into smaller tasks to lead students through the difficult process of questioning, researching, and then applying their knowledge.  First, webquests ask students an essential question to creates a clear purpose, inspires students to access prior knowledge, and create a level of excitement that motivates students to explore further.  Second, webquests provide quality, teacher previewed resources.  Students have easy access to quality resources and can now focus on analyzing and interpreting their resources.  Third, webquests provide you with an on-line activity that gives kids an opportunity to apply (and solidify) their knowledge.  iwebquest.com packs these activities full of teaching strategies that make it easier for you to engage your students in learning and then assess their work.
