  • & Make sure you Test it out ahead of time if you don’t have time to test the technology – ask the technology integrator to test it ahead of time for you
  • The mountain of choices dumped in front of us has turned into a galaxy of choices which at times can overwhelm us. What if there was a way to help educators sift out some powerful experiences from the nearly 10,000 titles software publishers have poured onto school shelves? So what should guide us as we sort out this avalanche of material? What is the organizing principle?
  • Act with integrity and a strong understanding of the importance of safe & ethical behavior
  • Creatively synthesis their own knowledge in their own voice
  • Publish their work to put out for the world to see (authentic feedback)
  • Communicate with others effectively
  • Blogging creates less work for teachers as it allows for rapid widespread communication with parents and students. Maintaining a blog provides teachers, administrators, parents and students with an ongoing record of the academic year.
  • Weebly is perfect for creating classroom websites, student e-portfolios, and websites for assigned projects. Weebly enables your students to express themselves creatively using a variety of multimedia features, all within a protected environment that you control using a simple drag and drop interface, appropriate for all ages. And IT IS FREE.
  • What Are we searching so desperately for? Sometimes we’re not entirely sure how to find it.
  • Visually appealing Magazine rack-style coverage of information
  • Applications for Education Word cloud tools like  Tagxedo  can be useful for visual learners who need a visual depiction of the words of emphasis in a text. You could try having students use  Tagxedo  as an tool in the editing of their written work. Have students paste the text of an essay they've written into  Tagxedo  to see how often they use particular words or phrases. The students can then reflect on why they've used a particular word so often.

I realised we could play a 10 questions type game - where they have only 10 questions to guess the name of the city. It was great fun and soon they were firing away with the questions. 1.Is it in the UK? 2.Is it in Australia? 3.Is it Athens? 4.Does the city have any famous buildings?

    60. 70. Top 10 Ways to Use Wordle's Word Clouds for Classroom Lessons Read more:  http://www.brighthub.com/education/k-12/articles/59509.aspx#ixzz0pTBhlMap
    61. 71. Ideas: Using Word Clouds in Classroom <ul><li>1.  Personal Narratives : Write, or copy and paste, a personal narrative into Wordle. Students will be able to see what is important to their peers from the words that are produced from the Wordle word clouds. Compare the words that are used most often by boys, or girls, by age group, or by class/grade level. These Wordle lessons make great displays outside a classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>2.  Famous Speeches : Enter the text of a famous historical speech into Wordle. Analyze the results by looking at the most commonly used words, or even the words that are not used. What does this tell us about the orator and their intentions? Go History Place.com to  or American Rhetoric  for a list of historical speeches you may want to get started with. </li></ul><ul><li>3.  Create a Wordle Gift : Mother's Day,  Father's Day , Grandparent's Day, or even Teacher Appreciation Day, can all be celebrated with Wordle. Input your favorite adjectives for your chosen person, generate the word cloud, and add it to a greeting card, poster, calendar, or whatever else you choose. PC Screen Capture command keys: fn + PrintScreen or Ctrl + Print Screens </li></ul>Brighthub.com Read more:  http://www.brighthub.com/education/k-12/articles/58905.aspx#ixzz0pTEHdtlM
    62. 72. <ul><li>4.  Classroom Polls : Instead of your traditional bar graph or pictograph, try using Wordle to organize your data. What is the favorite color in your class? Have all students take turns at entering their favorite color in to Wordle and generate the resulting cloud. Bigger words = more popular colors. Repeat with ice cream flavors, pets, family members, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>5.  Compare and Contrast : Use Wordle as a  compare and contrast  tool. Compare and contrast the word clouds of two or more students' writing, famous speeches, song lyrics, news reports, book reviews or whatever else you may need to compare in your classroom studies. </li></ul><ul><li>6.  Student Profiles : I have done this with PowerPoint before, but recently saw someone do the same with Wordle lessons. Have all students in your class write a few positive adjectives about each of their classmates anonymously. Compile all the papers, input the adjectives for each student into Wordle, and generate a student profile word cloud to give back to the student. Children always enjoy this positive feedback exercise, and it can be a great end of year activity to take home from the last day of school. </li></ul>Ideas: Using Word Clouds in Classroom
    63. 73. <ul><li>7.  Current Affairs Analysis : Copy and paste a news story into Wordle. What could the story have been about? Can you guess what the headline would have been? Where could have it taken place? These questions and more make this a worthy discussion exercise. </li></ul><ul><li>8.  Wordle Word Walls : Brighten up your  word walls  with Wordle lessons. Students can brainstorm synonyms, antonyms, or definitions for their list of vocabulary words. Add your word clouds to your existing word wall work to help stimulate those higher thinking skills in your students. Keep a tally of the targeted vocabulary words that the children use in speech on a daily basis, and them to a Wordle cloud to show which are used most often. </li></ul><ul><li>9.  Unit Review/Preview Posters : Students can create  KWL charts  on what they would like to learn and find out about a given topic. Alternatively, create word clouds at the end of a unit to summarize the key learning points or vocabulary from a given topic. </li></ul><ul><li>10.  Historical Document Analysis : Have you ever wondered what the Magna Carta or Declaration of Independence would look like when pasted into Wordle? Try it and see. There will be lots of talking points from the resulting word cloud. What do you predict you will see? What themes can you identify? How does the word cloud fit in with the historical context of the document? </li></ul>Ideas: Using Word Clouds in Classroom
    64. 74.

    103. 120. Writing Through Visualization <ul><li>Before Tamlyn and Quinn did their descriptive writing, they created storyboards about the action they wanted to represent in an assignment on &quot;expanding the moment&quot; -- making the story more intense by describing a fleeting instant in great detail. From their storyboards, they each created a computer animation of the action. Frame by frame, the animation in turn sparked their imaginations and helped them create word pictures. &quot;It gives you ideas about what you see,&quot; says Quinn. Kid Pix was among the computer programs they used. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;What the animation does is it assists the children in visualizing the action,&quot; explains Mitchell, who teaches language arts enrichment classes . &quot;The animation is a way of them developing the picture so they relate that to the writing, to what they hear, what they see, what they feel.&quot; Technology, she adds, &quot;gives you one more way of teaching something.&quot; </li></ul>Curtis, Diane, “High Tech in Hawaii”, http:// www.edutopia.org/nuuanu , October 2009.
