      This resource is great for visual learners and great to reinforce vocabulary and key words for a unit or lesson. I can see using this as one of the options for a choice board activity.

      I like how Wordle adds a special perspective to collaborative efforts. It allows the group to focus on the big topics while still seeing the whole picture. Informative, creative, and fun.

    I heard a great idea for using Wordle this week. Copy and paste the text of a student's paper. Check to see which words are most predominant. Too many pronouns, unspecific vocabulary ("stuff") or overuse of the same transition words? They should pop right out from the rest of the graphic! Another idea - copy and paste the text of a famous speech - great way to get at the main concepts of the language used.

    Wordle is a tool for generating "word clouds" from text or list of words that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can edit your clouds by adding different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. This is a great tool for priming learning or a before reading activity. It is a great way to introduce vocabulary and teach students the importance of using context clues to decipher word meanings.
  •  
    I have used this very fun activity with my French students. I make a "word cloud" with French adjectives and have students find the antonyms.

    I used this tool with my 8th graders after writing a personal narrative. They pasted it in, along with their name, cut and pasted a bunch of times to make it more prominent in the printed out version. What a great end-of-unit culmination! Very eye-catching display.
  •  
    This tool is a great way to engage students at the start of the class. When a text is a difficult read, contains many terms and specialized concepts, I have my students shout out the different terms or words they found important when pre-reading the materials. This gets them thinking about the content, and they hear terms they did not notice within the text or have not heard before which gets them intriqued to find out what they missed. I have found this activity a valuable tool to start a class as it also raises the instructor's authority in front of the class (because of use of modern technology and out-of-box ideas)

    Had fun with this tool last evening. Used it to create program covers for event. Added title of event, date, etc. then created a personalized cover for each attendee by adding his/her name. I was able to save the cover by taking a screenshot using Jing and then could do final sizing.

    Wordle generates striking word clouds.
  •  
    I could use Wordle to create a word cloud about "Immigration" and "Ellis Island" to use in education programs. I also envision writing an activity that utilzes wordle in the classroom.
  •  
    I've used Wordle in the business world for title pages in Powerpoint, as notes from a brainstorming session and a creative way to cover resource binder. Best of all it's fun to use. I can see using this with my children as a fun way to work on spelling words. What's more fun than making pictures out of words.

    I use Wordle to create "word clouds" when teaching vocabulary, especially to middle and high school students. I am able to create my own text or use text from our reading to enhance the vocabulary lesson. Students then create their own Wordles. Very interactive!

    Yes, Wordle is fun! I have made everything from greeting cards to graphics for webpages with it. It seems there is no end to how creative one can get with it as I have seen some really great clouds out there! And I'm getting so many more ideas from the comments here. Thanks all!
  •  
    I've actually used this tool and am happy to be reminded of how useful it is! I used it in a review for a final exam by creating a word cloud of topics/terms that would be in the exam. The students were divided into 2 teams and I wouldn't show them the word cloud until I read the questions. One person was the runner for each group. Once the question was read, the first runner to find the correct answer (term or topic) got 1 point. The students (vocational college students) loved this. This semester I need to add to the cloud because the students beg for more!

  •  
    Make word clouds with text.  Nice to emphase new words / making cover sheets etc.  Nice to think about using bilingually.  For example, in Grade 2 math we could have fun reviewing core vocabulary in two langauges.
  •  
    Wordle can provide a fun way for my learners to make connections between reading and writing.  I would like to try using it as a pre-writing activity to prepare for a summary.

    As a student presentation tool, this is great. My students enjoy a more 'polished' presentation when they can produce it.

    "I can remember a particular English Teacher who used one of those terms in just about every sentence to us. "I have to provide you '21st Century Skills' or else you won't be prepared for college or the 'real world." Being a Senior, close to graduation, I didn't really want to know or even care about, what she was talking about; I just wanted out!"
