WebQuests have been widely used by teachers to integrate technology into teaching and learning. Preservice teachers learn about WebQuests during their teacher education programs and studies support that they are mostly positive about the integration of WebQuests in teaching. However, little is known about if preservice teachers continue these positive attitudes towards the use of WebQuests when they actually become teachers. This study tries to investigate preservice and in-service teachers' attitudes toward WebQuests as a method of classroom Instruction and make a comparison of the two groups.
