WebQuests are a structured learning experience that uses links to essential resources on the World Wide Web and an authentic task to motivate learners’ investigation of an open-ended question for the development of individual expertise and participation in a process that transforms newly acquired information into a more sophisticated understanding. The best WebQuests inspire learners to see richer thematic relationships, to contribute to the real world of learning, and to reflect on their own meta-cognitive processes. WebQuests are frequently described as 'scaffolded' learning structures to support learner performance beyond their capacities.
The ICE-CAP WebQuest challenges were designed to support family members between the ages of 16 and 20 years to develop an acute understanding of key environmental issues, the emerging circular economy and circular economy business models. A typical WebQuest has an introduction and 5 essential parts: task, process, resources, evaluation, and conclusion. The WebQuests present real-world scenarios related to environmental issues in both positive and negative scenarios and set tasks for learners to complete. It is important to understand that these are challenge-based exercises and the challenges can be themed to address specific topics or subjects that have specific local resonance in partner countries
