Are you a visual learner? Here are some helpful “word” resources for you . . .

How you take in and review information can determine IF you learn. For a long time, visual learners were at a disadvantage because so many of our learning resources were text-based . . . times have changed!

There are many great resources to support visual learners learn words.  Here are just a few . . .

Searching for a word to use in an essay or to describe a certain feeling or situation?   Use the Visual Thesaurus to “see” the connections.  This resource works in 5 additional languages.  Also available as an app for iPad/iPod.  This online tool won the 2010 World Technology Award for education.

A similar tool is Visuwords - built on the Wordnet from Princeton University.

It is easier to use, but does not offer as many built-in tools.

If you are looking up the meaning of words – try theVisual Dictionary

It is a dictionary with a new point of view

THAT CATCHES THE EYE AND ENRICHES THE MIND.

  • 20,000 terms with contextual definitions,
    developed by terminology experts;
  • 6,000 full-color images of a wide variety of objects
    from all aspects of life;
  • One essential reference.

There are subject specific visual learning guides like the Illustrated Mathematics Dictionary  or

the Internet Picture Dictionary designed to help you learn vocabulary in many languages.

There are endless visual “word” resources . . . feel free to comment on this post to share more!
