WebQuestUK provides a way of using Internet resources, alongside other resources, within a clearly defined structure that scaffolds learning. WebQuestUK develops the webquest concept in line with UK National Curriculum 2000. It enables students to work towards communicating their ideas about a Task as the result of working through a clear Process that provides a range of resources and guidance.

The work of Belle Wallace in developing the TASC model for problem solving is being used to underpin the Process in which students will engage. In her book Teaching the Very Able Child (Belle Wallace, 2000) there are materials which exemplify the essential elements of the problem-solving process. TASC in practice is an Inclusive Policy for all learners. Please see the following texts for examples*

WebQuestUK does not focus on the able student, but uses the TASC rationale to enhance the thinking skills of all students.

Click on each sector of the TASC problem solving framework to reveal the whole process as it applies to WebQuestUK resources.
