Guided Inquiry Made Semi-Easy
The WebQuest model has been around since 1995 when I developed it for use in a course
at San Diego State University. The goal then, and now, was to create lessons that
make good use of the web, engage learners in applying higher level thinking to
authentic problems, and use everyone's time well. Since that beginning, one of
the ongoing challenges has been to make it faster and easier for teachers to do
all these things. QuestGarden is the end result of those 17 years of effort.
