    I discovered “wordle” a few weeks ago. Along with being a fairly cool tool, teachers can use it as a challenge for students by selecting vocabulary that will be used in the unit. Students can do a “free-write” showing their knowledge and/or predictions about the vocabulary. Additionally – students can unravel the puzzle and write a piece using the vocabulary words. Neat – of course I especially like the color and font options!

    i used tag crowd when i was teaching, i was have my students use a word cloud to investigate and lead discussions on the inaugural addresses of the first 5 presidents. they’re not only good looking, but useful too 🙂

    I too love wordle and have used it in both print and electronic forms. I’ve used it for an electrictiy unit, an adverb unit, and a fine arts unit on Salvador Dali connected to imagery. It’s a good way to summarize learning from a unit or brainstorm concept knowledge prior and post unit instruction.
