MetaGlossary harvests definitions from the entire web, the world's largest, constantly-updated repository of information.

"We have added the ability to mark and sort different lists of words important to educators such as the AWL and the GSL. We have also integrated it with a few other functions, such as visualization of word thesaurus relationships (incorporating the amazing Visual Thesaurus® that we highly recommend in its own right) and Google® searches of images and videos. With just a click on any word in the Tag Cloud, the program displays instances of sentences in which that word is used in the text."
I think that this site might be integrated into the classroom as a pre-reading activity. A teacher could use the images provided by google and the visual thesaurus to pre-teach specific vocabulary words. This would help build background knowledge and activate learners' schema.
