Wordwall

Wordwall is a free online tool for creating learning activities. With this tool, teachers can enter the topic that they would like to cover in class into the Wordwall and receive a variety of ready-made, fully customisable activities such as quizzes, word games, maze chases and much more. You also can create your own activity from scratch. Moreover, the majority of activities on Wordwall can be used in both interactive and printable formats.

Evaluation: Wordwall is a quick and easy to use tool to create interactive activities for your class. This tool offers a wide variety of activities to choose from and makes learning much more fun. Moreover, it is available in many different languages. A drawback is that with the free account one can only create up to 5 activity types. After that, you will have to delete activities to create new ones.
