TitleCombining the Children’s Dictionary Addizionario with a Multimedia Activity Book
AbstractA CD is presented containing a hypermedia linguistic laboratory for six to fourteen year-old children studying Italian either as native or as foreign language. Two interrelated tools are integrated within the laboratory: "Addizionario", a computer dictionary written and illustrated by the children themselves, and a multimedia Activity Book linked to the dictionary. The Activity Book is a creative tool by which the child can construct his own personal dictionary, changing and tailoring to his needs the information imported from Addizionario, or adding new words and relevant definitions, examples, associations and drawings to the list of 1,000 words already present in the core dictionary. This product is addressed to students, who can study language in a more pleasant and appealing manner; teachers, who can prepare specifically designed didactic units; and lexicographers, who wish to exploit the material produced by the children to create better and more attractive young learners’ dictionaries.
