Bestwords.me – Web 2.0 vocabulary building
BestWords.me is a really cool, authentic website where students can build vocabulary (adjectives) in a Web 2.0 / interactive fashion. Simple as pie and no registration! Students just: 1. make a personal “word” page 2. Choose words to describe themselves 3. Share the page with other students (by email or on your class page) 4. Other students add words about that person ( add words about me – try it out! Please be kind!) Here’s my quick screencast showing how this works. Visit the creator’s page (Jared) and find out more about what he’s into. Interested in other website reviews? Find hundreds of my reviews HERE.
Just so you know, there are some inappropriate words in the options you can select! I wouldn’t use this with K-12 students.
Thanks for pointing that out. It will help teachers decide whether its usable for their own teaching environment. But in general I like the concept, maybe we can get him to make a Young Learners version? I’ve share a few emails and skype call with the creator and he’s quite an easy going, creative guy.
