A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. The model was developed by Bernie Dodge at San Diego State University in February, 1995 with early input from SDSU/Pacific Bell Fellow Tom March, the Educational Technology staff at San Diego Unified School District, and waves of participants each summer at the Teach the Teachers Consortium.

Pontydysgu, together with our associate researcher, Maria Perifanou, have been working on extending the original idea of webquests using Web 2.0 and social software.


Maria has been using Webquests for teaching Italian. Pontydysgu are developing a serie sof Web quests as part of the European funded Politics project. These will be added to this page when they are ready. The resources listed below come from Maria's work.
