This looks like a great free resource to help with teaching grammar.

Carolyn Quarterman's insight:

Similar to Kahoot but you can have students play a quiz game as a classroom activity or you an assign to them to play at home. Either way that they play students receive immediate feedback and can track their own progress on a game when they play it multiple times.

lingro: The coolest dictionary known to hombre!

lingro: The coolest dictionary known to hombre! | CQ_ESL_vocab & grammar resources | Scoop.it
lingro is a free multilingual AJAX dictionary and language learning site. Currently supporting English (ESL), Spanish, Italian, French, and German.
Carolyn Quarterman's insight:
Aninteresting online "dictionary" that works on computers and ipads.  If you go to lingro.com FIRST and then from there to your target website, every word on the target website page becomes clickable to a little dictionary pop-up box with definitions of your clicked word.  The dictionary pop-up is detailed, so not good for lower-level students, but it can be useful for advanced students.  (Note:  because each word on the webpage becomes clickable to a dictionary pop-up, to actually click on a link on that page, use the little green box that pops up.)
