Qwiki – Great Presentation Tool for Teachers

Standard

Qwiki is a fairly new web tool that allows creators to make short, 2- minute presentations, incorporating many different types of web media along with a video, audio or text narration you create.

FROM QWIKI
“Qwiki is very simple to use. Sign up for an account (it will be by invitation only for the next two weeks), decide what topic you want to make a Qwiki about, and then add up to six pieces of media — images, video, a Google map, etc. You can also add text to those image-heavy assets and then record a video narration to string together a visual, multimedia story.”

I found out about Qwiki in May and started using it in some of my classes. It’s an interesting and quick way to present information. When I have used QWIKIS, students have told me they enjoyed them because they were fast and got the message across using a lot of media formats they were used to seeing online.

In the post I’ve included a three part tutorial on how to create a Qwiki. I’ve also embedded a few Qwikis I have created and how I used them in my class.
