Web based Projects: WebQuests and Webtasks

A WebQuest is an educational strategy defined by Bernie Dodge in 1995.

Typically it has 5 parts: Introducction, Task, Process (including resources and scaffolding), Evaluation and Conclusion.

There are some requirements that a WebQuest should fullfil to be a real WebQuest:

- A WebQuest should promote high order thinking
- It is carried out in groups and each pupil has a different role
- The task can not be simply giving answer to some questions. It should involve doing some researh and transforming the information into something else.

Some examples

WebQuests are quite complex and therefore they are not everyday activities. But we can always design a less complex activity where the final aim is also a task and that is called Webtask.

A WebTask can be defined as a task based activity using web resources; the aim of the task will be mainly communicative and and will be focused on content rather than on formal aspects. Read more about it here
