Quandary Home Page

Quandary Home Page | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Quandary is an application for creating Web-based Action Mazes. An Action Maze is a kind of interactive case-study; the user is presented with a situation, and a number of choices as to a course of action to deal with it. On choosing one of the options, the resulting situation is then presented, again with a set of options. Working through this branching tree is like negotiating a maze, hence the name "Action Maze".

Action mazes can be used for many purposes, including problem-solving, diagnosis, procedural training, and surveys/questionnaires.

Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between.

Professional blog | 21st Century Educator | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Using Google forms for a "Choose your own adventure" narrative:

The basic idea is, the students construct a story where the next page in the story depends on a decision made by the person reading the story. Generally in one of these books the reader flips to a different page depending on the students'/readers' choice.
