Qwiki has launched a new site, which is a "presentation platform" and it appeared that the material from the original Qwiki was gone...but it is available under this new URL. 
For those of you who have not tried Qwiki it is worth checking out. Type in your search term and it is transformed into a visual presentation, with real-time audio narration and other data including maps, movies, images, animations and more. 

I tried it and it would work well with kids who struggle to identify useful information.
