WebQuests are a popular framework for guided, web-based inquiry. The primary goals of WebQuests are to help students develop higher-level thinking skills and knowledge application. This paper describes WebQuests and the rationale for using them. It presents modifications to the WebQuest model drawing primarily from Schema Theory and Experiential Learning. A revised model demonstrates how WebQuests can be used for cultural inquiry.
