Word clouds

After reading back over fellow pre-service teachers blog posts, a post by Mrs Kelly caught my eye. What drew me in was her image. It was like a word cloud in a fantastic footprint shape. The words in the cloud were relevant to talking about digital footprint and they were arranged in various sizes into the shape of a foot print. I started to investigate how I too could create a word cloud into any shape I choose, as I see this as a valuable tool to use whilst out on prac.

I initially tried Wordle but due to having Windows 1o I found that I couldn’t use it without Java. So I then tried Tagul and hey presto, I created my own word cloud! I really think I will be using this word cloud generator on prac for brainstorming and to appeal to visual learners.
