WordAhead - check out the widget!

Here's a site that, I think, is best suited for middle school students, but you're probably a better judge. WordAhead. Each word in the database has an animated video associated with it that pronounces the word, gives its definition, and uses it in a sentence. But, there's more.

There's a study room (that wouldn't come up on my laptop this AM) and a place where you can submit your own video that defines a word. Videos of under 15 mb, under 2 minutes in length, and in one of three common formats are accepted and reviewed. Maybe you've got a student who would LOVE this challenge.

The thing that hooked me was the widget. (below) I like that for on your teacher page somewhere.

What do you think?
