How I Use It
I introduce this with short news videos about the schools and students that benefit from the free rice food program. It is a great discussion and critical thinking starter because the site combines great uses of the Internet - facilitating global awareness and solutions, as will as using technology and Internet resources to facilitate learning.
My Take
This is a great vocabulary game for students to work alone or in competition with others. Nice features: missed questions are repeated, each word can be pronounced with a click, the site encourages philanthropy.
