Just found out about this CoP. Good to find people still actively sharing knowledge on (the use of) WQs and education. I also checked out the discussion on whether the webquest concept is getting outdated. IMO, that is rather a non-issue as the whole WQ concept is about providing a structured approach to integrating web technologies in learning processes. The format is perfectly suitable to include the use of new applications and developments.
My focus in the WebQuest era has been on the implications for Modern Languages.
