Won’t you join us for a QWIKI?

So, you may be asking yourself, “What is a QWIKI and will you still respect me when its over” . . . ok enough of the double entendre. QWIKI (http://www.qwiki.com) is an amazingly slick information tool and this will be the 1st in a series of posts on how you can use your SMART Board to integrate this cool new site into your classroom instruction.

First, let’s learn about QWIKI from its creators Doug Imbruce – CEO and Louis Monier – CTO.

Qwiki’s goal is to forever improve the way people experience information.

Whether you’re planning a vacation on the web, evaluating restaurants on your phone, or helping with homework in front of the family AppleTV, Qwiki is working to deliver information in a format that’s quintessentially human – via storytelling instead of search.

We are the first to turn information into an experience. We believe that just because data is stored by machines doesn’t mean it should be presented as a machine-readable list. Let’s try harder.

Think of asking your favorite teacher about Leonardo Da Vinci, or your most well-traveled friend about Buenos Aires: this is the experience Qwiki will eventually deliver, on demand, wherever you are in the world… on whatever device you’re using.

Here is a quick clip of the co-founders Doug and Louis introducing the product at TechCrunch Disrupt.
