Essential Digital Visualisation Tools for Language Learning

An old proverb says that it is better to see something once than hear about it a hundred times.
Enhancing language learning with visual dictionaries, thesauri and text visualisation tools is a step forward in language education, as it helps to create an appealing and inspiring learning environment, triggers students’ creativity and encourages research-based learning through language exploration. The session will demonstrate practical ways to use online visualisation tools for a range of motivating classroom activities.
