Wordia, a vocabulary resource that I initially reviewed last year, recently underwent a facelift. The new Wordia is much more student-friendly than the previous version of the service. Wordia now features word lists arranged by subject area and the age of students. Wordia now offers games based on the words in the word lists. Students and teachers now have the option to create their own word lists and videos to upload to Wordia. And coming soon, students will be able to track their progress and earn digital reward badges.
The video below offers a good overview of Wordia.
Applications for Education
The visual aspect of Wordia could help students remember the meanings of words on their vocabulary lists. The videos of students and adults explaining what the words mean in context beyond the dictionary definitions could also help students remember and recall the meaning of words.
