MEDO top tip

09-Aug-2007

Here's a helpful tip from MEC Training Assistant, Steph Earnshaw:

Don’t forget about MEDO! To access it all you have to do is click on the Dictionary link in MEC as shown below.

Did you know that there are interactive games on the MEDO website? You can find them by opening the dictionary from the link shown above and clicking on ‘Resource Site’ which takes you to the ‘Macmillan Dictionaries’ page. On this page, click ‘More interactive activities and games’ which takes you to the ‘Resources’ page. Here, click on ‘a whole host of games’. You will now see the ‘Games’ page and you can choose from the list of six games shown below.

Alternatively you can follow this link.

For a fun lesson warmer play one or more the games projected onto the whiteboard, or with an interactive whiteboard. If you don’t have either of these available you can get your learners to play the games in pairs. You could even run a competition to see which pair can solve each game the quickest.

Your learners can use the online dictionary to look up any new words, either in class or for homework. Go over new vocabulary together and get them to choose the most useful words to put into their MEC wordlists.

Which MEDO features do you like to use in class?
