Teacher Overview

Commonly known as the world’s most comprehensive dictionary. You can use the dictionary and encyclopaedia in 14 languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, and Russian amongst others). This is an excellent “wiki” style resource which can act as a reference app in order to encourage fresh connections between ideas, experiences texts and words. The app can serve as dictionary, thesaurus, translation tool and encyclopaedia.

There are also a few games within the app that pupils may like to play in order to expand their vocabulary and spelling. Encouraging pupils to use it as a resource to begin searching for things would be an interesting activity for the classroom or homework.
