lingro: The coolest dictionary known to hombre! - 85 views

    • Tricia Hunt
      Lingro is really cool.  It takes any website or highlighted piece of text and makes every single word clickable.  Once you click on the word, it will tel you the definition in more than 11 lanugages!
    A nice multilingual dictionary and translation site. Lots of extra tools, such as a website translator and file viewer.,+Culture+&+International+Projects
    The coolest dictionary known to hombre!  Creates an interactive dictionary from what you are reading, text or web.  It remembers all the words you look up so that you can review later.
    An online dictionary and translator - view on webpage through their web page viewer and every word becomes clickable to see a definition

Sensory Map of Hong Kong - 111 views

    This a great idea for a project that successfully infuses technology into a language class. Students (aged 13-14) were required to go to an area in Hong Kong and use their 5 senses to describe what they experienced. Their English teachers helped them by taking them on walks around the neighbourhood of our school and getting them to think about what they could see, smell, taste, hear and touch. The students then worked in groups, picked an area they wanted to explore and set off to use their newly heighten senses. They used their phones to digitally record what they came across. Later this work was taken into ICT class where this interactive media rich website was created with the help of their ICT teacher. We hope you enjoy it! Check out the teachers' picks at the bottom.
    I particularly liked the "sound" elements that had actual sound! (usually film footage) - that's an example of truly making the experience multimedia and doing something that we couldn't do with earlier technology.
