- Guess the book – works great when you have access to the text of famous books via sites such as Project Gutenberg.
- Use to introduce a topic – pupils could guess what they will be learning about from a word cloud made of keywords.
- Comparing different newspapers – look at the same story in a Broadsheet and a tabloid newspaper (website) and compare the wordle clouds produced – how do the words used differ?
- Self-reflection on work – as Wordle makes a word larger the more frequently it is used, pupils will be able to see at a glance which words or phrases they are over-using. Are they using the word Nice or Good too often?
- Use to analyse the content and gist a longer written text, especially with exam or higher level groups
- To introduce new vocabulary or to memorise new vocabulary/vocabulary lists
- Revision of key topics and vocabulary – pupils can create their own worldes or they can be given them to use
- To give presentations without reading from a sheet and just using prompts
- Encouraging creative writing from a selection of key words from a word cloud
