Bring Words to Life!

Wordia is a video dictionary site where people post videos to define words visually. You can watch or upload videos, find defitions and more all for free.

Visuwords, allows users to enter words and Visuwords builds a word web of related terms, parts of speech, and definitions.

Lexipedia, another word web tool that builds webs from keywords that you enter. Lexipedia returns synonyms, antonyms,definitions and even allows for French, German and Spanish words!

Snappywords, builds word webs also with defintions and related words. Seems to be just starting and is adding components as they go.

These tools would be great for ESL, foregin language, elementary students, and low level readers. Could also be used for SAT and PSSA prep work.
