Snapify - Quickly Find Definitions and Explanations

Yesterday, during my presentation for the DEN Virtual Conference I included a bunch of my favorite tools. One that I want to highlight again this evening is Snapify. Snapify is a handy little Chrome extension that allows you to highlight any word or phrase on a webpage and quickly find definitions, videos, Tweets, and webpages about that word or phrase. See it in action in the video below.

Applications for Education
Snapify could be a great little tool for students to use when they're reading articles online. Anytime students come to a word or phrase that they don't understand they can simply highlight it and click "snap it" to find definition or explanation.
