Qwiki - An Amazing Classroom Ready Resource

What is a Qwiki?

A Qwiki is hard to explain, you'll just have to see it for yourself.
It's an amazing amount of information, communicated in a concise and entertaining way.

According to the Qwiki founders a Qwiki is information turned into an experience that you can watch...
It's a marriage of Art and Science...

It's a platform you'll love to use in your classroom.  You can have your students type in any content...and learn in a fun way.  Perhaps you can give them a broad topic, say... the Silk Road, and from there they can explore for themselves anything having to do with the Silk Road.

With each experience you can click on a picture to learn more, or wait for related Qwikis to hatch after viewing the Qwiki.  For example, the Han Dynasty, Cities along the Silk Road or Roman Chinese relations.  The possibilities are endless.

Try it out, you'll be impressed.
