EdTech Tool Uses:Visuwords is an online graphical dictionary and thesaurus to find the definition for a queried work and also display the associations with other related words and concepts in concept map format (very dynamic in style). The tool is powered by Princeton University's WordNet, an opensource database built by University students and language researchers. Visuwords makes use of different colours and styles of line (dotted, solid, arrows, etc.) to illustrate different types of word and association (for instance, purple = noun and green = verb). A nice, visual tool.
