Each book in this series takes aspects of current research into geographical education and delivers them to the classroom practitioner. The Theory into Practice series is dedicated to improving and reinvigorating the debate about teaching and learning in geography.

Key elements of the series are direct communication with the classroom practitioner about current aspects of research in geographical education, and how these relate to the classroom.

WebQuests in Geography explores the relationship between ICT and student learning in geography. In particular, it proposes the use of WebQuests. WebQuests are enquiry-oriented activities whereby learners work collaboratively and draw most of their information from the World Wide Web. They focus on learners using information rather than looking for it and aim to make the most of online education.
