Using word clouds to identify
Working with large groups of students, it can
be challenging to see where each student is
with their understanding, yet still deal with
the entire class.
Word clouds can help teachers and students
to visualise which words the students find
difficult, and at the same time give students
notion of that they are not the only one
wondering about a specific issue or are
uncertain of the mearning of taught concepts.
Collecting words for a word cloud
The students came forward to the teacher and read the words
they had marked out. The teacher wrote those words into the
word cloud generator (http://www.wordle.net/)
The word cloud visualise which words several
students struggle with……
…. and it is quite obvious which words that need attention.
