Robin Good: Loopster is a web-based free video editor which allows you to easily upload, edit, share and download your favorite video clips.
The service utilizes a traditional timeline and offers the option to edit individual clips by trimming their start and ending point, to add text captions and overlay titles, transitions, and audio effects and a soundtrack.
The final edited clip can be downloaded in .MPG format or shared directly on anyone of the major social networks.
The OneLook reverse dictionary is a great tool to get you thinking about how to explain what words mean.

I don't often talk about it, but I own a little house in Sydney bay. It's not much, but I'm proud of it. The problem is that it is only virtual and made out of Lego. This wonderful site allows you to design 3D houses, or anything else, with virtual Lego on a virtual plot in Australia or New Zealand. It's like a simplified version of SketchUp, great for younger children. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/ICT+%26+Web+Tools
