EasyDefine - Define multiple words quickly | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it
Look up multiple words quickly. Simply copy and paste a list with any delimeter. Definitions/synonyms are immediately available for viewing, emailing, or downloading.

Via Shona Whyte
nicolaperry's insight:

I tried a quick random list of words and the definitions seemed pretty good but not for lower level learners. I couldn't find any information about which dictionary they have used. 

 

It's quick, though, so could be useful in class for instant results and to use for word games.

Nicola: This is a great explanation of why good lesson planning is important. If you think your learners aren't engaged, it could be because you lost them with your instructions, the difficulty of the task or not breaking it down into small enough stages.
