W is for.......... Webquest.

A webquest is an authentic task to motivate students using the World Wide Web. Students work together to solve a problem, task, or create publications. Students use research based information to help them in their usually team orginated journey. It is a great tool to use as a post activity, to check for understanding, or as a joint assignment with the lecture. Teachers and students can create webquests. The keypoints to webquests are that they motivate students, enhances differentiated learning, prompts thematic instruction, and is a tool for authentic assessment.
