During the last decades, literature has demonstrated the benefits of WebQuests as a potential resource for promoting critical thinking skills and knowledge. However, in higher education contexts, research on the use of WebQuests as a tool to promote democratic education is extremely scarce. Although there are some studies involving student teachers on the appropriateness and effectiveness of the WebQuest approach to learning, few studies have focused on the development of democratic education by students with the support of other ICT resources. The present study investigated the impact of WebQuests in higher education classrooms and on democratic education in the Region of Murcia, Spain. The design and planning of WebQuests was encouraged along with other electronic resources to help foster learning and networking among future teachers.
