    Imagine a site like "Wordle" but on steroids - Tagxedo allows you to make word clouds with images. Really cool possibilities as an ice breaker to the new school year.

    Does it only work on PCs...I tried to run this on my mac but can't get past the home page; when I go to create, I am asked to download Microsoft SilverLight, which I do. Then, nothing else happens.

    The site allows you to choose or upload an image to go along with the tag cloud generated.

    Similar to Wordle but now you can make them into images!

    I genuinely want to ask: what is the educational point of 'word clouds'?
    To me there are useful as 'word searches' which have to be the almost useless.
    How have I got this so wrong?

    To Gerald Carey - As an English teacher, word clouds are a great tool. Taking text from literature or even from your own students' writing and placing it in a word cloud builder allows students to find theme words because the words used the most often are bigger than the others. I've used my students' quickwrite entries about a chosen piece of text and shown them that they are all thinking through the literature the same way. It's pretty eye opening for an English class!
