51 Interesting Ways* to useWordle in the Classroom 1• http://www.ideastoinspire.co.uk/wordle.htm• Wordle a collection of words that represent parts of speech. Change the colors to white words on a black background in Wordle. Ask students to color nouns one color, verbs a different color, etc.• Ask students to predict what the main ideas of a reading will be.• Find out what ideas are most important in a famous speech. E.g. Martin Luther King Jnr’s speech Ï Have a Dream
51 Interesting Ways* to useWordle in the Classroom 2• Wordle text from the newspaper (online) looking at bias.• Use a non-fiction reading and ask students to use the Wordle to generate a title or headline before they see the real article.• Compare two different accounts / essays on the same theme / event - let them compare the Wordles generated by each.• Generate Wordles for two different reading - let students see if they can match the Wordle to its corresponding reading.
51 Interesting Ways* to useWordle in the Classroom 3• Two Wordle tips:• 1. Once you have created a Wordle right click a term to remove it from the results. Wordle will re-compute w/o it.• 2. Use ~ to connect two (or more) word into one term Ex: literacy~strategy
Tagxedo 1• Tagxedo turns words -- famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes -- into a visually stunning tag cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.• http://www.tagxedo.com/
Tagxedo 2• Make tag clouds and respin, and respin to your liking.• Save the tag cloud as images for printing and sharing.• Look at all variants of the clouds in a gallery and pick the one you want for further tweaking or saving.• Choose from many different fonts.• Use local fonts (e.g. downloaded from Font Squirrel, DaFont, FontSpace, or your own hand-drawn fonts).• Switch between different colors and themes.• Constrain the cloud to selected shapes (heart, star, cloud, oval, etc).

Wallwisher 3• Students could post images instead of words as part of the brainstorming session.• Put the starter in the title of the Wall; students have to finish them by posting stickies.• Wallwisher is a great way of polling opinions.• Students post stickies of their favourite sites.• Create a special wall for books.• http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/2010bookweek
