Lexipedia Webbed Word Connections

One of the best reasons for teachers to be on Twitter is the wealth of knowledge that is shared between users. Today, shortly after someone posted a link to my blog entry about Visuwords two other people posted responses each including a link to Lexipedia. Anne Marie also told us about Lexipedia in her comment on the Visuwords post.

Lexipedia, like Visuwords, provides the definitions of words along with a webbed diagram of related words and their definitions. In addition to definitions and diagrams, Lexipedia offers audio pronunciations of words although when I tested it the audio didn’t seem to be working properly. In my side-by-side comparison of Lexipedia and Visuwords, both performed equally well, but occasionally offered different definitions and connections for the same word.

Applications for Education
Lexipedia, like Visuwords, is a good alternative to Visual
Thesaurus. Lexipedia makes it easy for students to explore alternative word choices and connections between words.
