Blachan Shahi - A Visual Dictionary Site

I am always in search of the latest and greatest tools; however, sometimes it is helpful to revisit the tools that have been around for awhile.

One of my favorite tools is Blachan Shahi - a free visual dictionary.

You can easily use this tool in your classroom by having students enter in a vocabulary term of their choice. They will receive a text definition along with Flickr images.

This is a great way of scaffolding learning for students. They are able to read the text definition of the term, as well as have a visual to solidify its meaning.


  1. Is this site no longer available? I can't seem to get it to work. It's a blank page when I go to http://blachan.com/shahi/

  2. It appears that it is no longer a valid website! :( It's a shame because it was one of my favorites.
