Wordia what...?

Wordia is an online visual dictionary which has the published aim of 'redefining the dictionary'. It asks members of the public and celebrity 'orators' to upload videos explaining what words mean to them. The videos are then published on the site alongside the traditional textual definition sourced from the Collins English Dictionary.
The site was founded in 2008 by TV producer Ed Baker, backed by the online entrepreneur ,Michael Brich and launched at the house of DOctor Johnson, the man behind the first modern dictionary.
Its founders and others have extoled the benefits of having different dictionaries for different audiences. Some parties in the UK have argued Wordia's democratic approach will undermine the quality of the definitions.

What is a webquest?
A webquest is an assignment which asks students to use the World Wide Web to learn about and/or synthesize their knowledge a specific topic. A “true” webquest, as originally designed by Bernie Dodge and Tom March, requires synthesis of the new knowledge by accomplishing a “task,” often to solve a hypothetical problem or address a real-world issue. Simpler web activities designed for students to investigate and collect new knowledge from web-based sources can also be a more engaging and effective replacement for read-the-chapter-and-complete-the-review-questions. This tutorial will walk you through the basics to create a simple or more elaborate activity.

Here is the link of a WebQuest that I created about photography, copy and paste the following link in a new window:

PLease feel free to leave comments in this blog if you feel/think this WebQuest need any changes.
