WebQuest is a term that has been used among teachers using technology for many years as a way of using the web to promote higher levels of thinking. The problem comes when we expect our credential students to design these activities without giving them a simple and easy to use template to create one with. Teacherweb.com allows teachers to create their own WebQuest for free and within minutes. This service has been extremely valuable to credential students at two major universities and I'm sure will benefit your students as well.
