New Tools

Just a few new Firefox Extensions and Add-Ons you might want in your classroom, or at home...

backword... is a nifty little software widget that lets a mouse hover translate a word, a great tool for English-language learners.

Converter... a right-click measurement conversion system. What's the temperature in New York in Celsius? How much does that sack of potatoes weigh in kilos? How far is it from DeGaulle Airport to the Sorbonne in miles?

Pronounce... instant pronunciation of English-language (US) words via double-clicking.

Map+... the instant, right-click mapping tool, works from web pages and email.
