What are WebQuests?

"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 ... focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. WebQuests synthesizes critical thinking, cooperative learning, authentic assessment, and technology integration into one integrated student activity."
