|4/24/2011 22:49:58||Wordle||http://www.wordle.net||This is a word tag cloud -- create a visual of summaries, vocabulary and definitions or meaningful sentences, reflections; I also copied and pasted online text to create a word list in Wordle form as a writing prompt.||A student from Memphis told our class "Cole says: Wordle is so cool to use. I like wordle because it is a great way to brainstorm. The thoughts in this wordle are really good. A couple of days ago I made a wordle based on a book called The Cay. My class had a choice of setting, character, or theme. I chose theme and it was about World War II. The wordle is a very good website and is excellent,"|
|4/24/2011 22:53:39||Tagxedo||http://www.tagxedo.com/||Another word cloud from text you input; this one allows you to use shapes to add more context and imagery to the content. Use for vocabulary development, summaries, reflections, and prompts. I bet you could think of many other uses.||Here's my first real one based on the reflections of teachers in Google Workshop Sessions 1 and 2: http://www.tagxedo.com/artful/9eb4e2fef0ca42c2||Sheri|
