Qwiki

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.

Applications for Education

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.
