A new tool Iconscrabble

Despite of looking plain and even boring, this new web tool Iconscrabble makes wonders. You have to enter a word or a short phrase and the tool presents your word in a special way - it composes your word of icons/ logos which in turn are linked to their respective websites. Amazing!

You get a picture like this but its links are active only on the Iconscrabble website. A pity you cannot embed it anywhere.

You can use this tool at the lesson - ask your students to type their names and discover what websites each letter in their name represents.
Ask them to find out a website for each letter of the alphabet. There are many icons for one letter so students will have different websites for one and the same letter. A whole lesson of fun!
