This time I stumbled on news about Qwiki from “Free technolgy for teachers” via the Facebookpage.
If you are not fan of the page you should be!
Qwiki is a multimedia encyclopedia containing more than three million entries. Qwiki publishes narrated, illustrated, interactive reference entries. To use Qwiki, enter a topic in the search box or select a topic from the featured topics on the homepage. Then watch, listen, and read the Qwiki entry for that topic. Below your chosen Qwiki you will see a selection of related Qwiki entries. You can also find related materials by clicking the “Q” symbol that appears at the end of the Qwiki play bar.
Qwiki could be a fantastic way for students to all kinds of information. For a lot of “standard” curriculum topics, Qwiki’s entries provide a more engaging format for learning about those topics than that offered by textbooks.
