Spelltube is a British site that is implementing a good idea — helping students learn vocabulary through the use of funny videos and online interaction.
It’s pretty engaging, though it does have a decidedly British “bent.” It’s free, and teachers can create virtual classrooms in order to track the progress of their students.
Since I’d like to think I at least sometimes write with an international audience in mind, I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress. However, I probably wouldn’t use it much with students in the United States.
Thanks to the Kent ICT Blog for the tip.
