WebQuests have influenced many teachers to integrate the Internet into the curriculum in a meaningful manner by utilizing constructivist practices and principles. While this has been a successful model in many classrooms, the concept and use of WebQuests has also been misunderstood and the result has been poorly-designed WebQuests that digress from the original intent of this activity. This paper proposed a new 6-stage model titled a "NetQuest" that gives more guidance and more details to teachers than WebQuests. The NetQuest also insures that teachers will utilize active learning techniques and 21st century teacher practices, areas that are not always evident in all stages of WebQuests activities.
