WEBQUEST PROJECTS

by Mary Barber and Joanne Porr

"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."     Bernie Dodge

This projects present the results of training sessions offered at Tri-County Computer Services Association in Wooster, Ohio during the school year 2000-2001.  Teachers attended either four days of training or eight evening sessions.  As a concluding activity they created WebQuests for their classroom.
