My Take

Having an online dictionary is a great reference tool for classes/schools that allow technology use with BYOD devices and/or classroom computers.

How I Use It

I use it by linking definitions from it to QR codes (I use the free service Delivr to make the codes). Students then use their smartphones or my classroom computers to access the word and create multi-part index cards with definitions, a picture, sentence, etc. to enhance vocabulary acquisition. Students enjoy the technology aspect and learn new words in the process; the technology aids engagement.
