I just love word clouds. There is something cool and beautiful about seeing all the words of your blog, twitter feed, or favorite book combined together to make a piece of art. However it’s not just to something to look at and admire, it’s also a tool. Teachers can use these for many different purposes: get to know students, find key words in a text, creating a site words poster and lots more.
Here is a list of different word cloud generators as well as some resources for more ideas on how to use them. How do you use them in your classroom? Which one is your favorite?
