This paper presents a research study that investigates whether a scaffolded learning structure such as a WebQuest can be used to effectively develop higher order thinking. The results from this study proved that through the use of scaffolded support and collaboration, teachers can effectively direct students learning and help them to gain higher order thinking skills moving beyond simple rote learning and towards the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
