Journal of Instructional Research, v3 p73-82 2014
Over the last decade, WebQuests have grown in popularity in educational environments. In order to effectively implement a WebQuest in the classroom, best pedagogical practices must be employed; however, these best WebQuest practices should reflect the exigent 21st century skills students need to be successful, productive members of the global community. A number of surveys have been conducted to identify what these skills are and, much to the chagrin of some members of the business community, new entrants to the workforce are gravely deficient in these skills. This article will identify and explore the 21st century skills employers are soliciting for in the 21st century workforce and proffer eight best practices WebQuests should apply to serve as a powerful pedagogical tool, helping prime students for the workforce.
