Abstract

Abstract: By the earliest definition (Dodge, 1995) a WebQuest is "an inquiry-oriented activity in which most of the information learners work with comes from the web." WebQuests are defined first as being "inquiry-oriented," but are they truly an example of inquiry or are they something else? The majority of WebQuests fall under Herron's (1971) category of structured inquiry, but there are higher levels of inquiry desired by educators that are difficult to promote using the WebQuests model. Based on a spiral path of inquiry, Web Inquiry Projects (WIPs) are designed to promote such higher levels of inquiry, specifically Herron's levels of guided and open inquiry.
