“108 Ways to Use Word Clouds in the Classroom” is a fabulous post from 21st Century Educational Technology and Learning. Word cloud generators, such as Wordle or Tagxedo, have become quite popular amongst teachers. However, they are often used for the same few activities. This post, from Michael Gorman, gives so many more options, and breaks them down by subject. For example, under Social Studies, he gives the suggestion, “Show different climates of different cities showing the scale of city size using average temperature, or rainfall, or snowfall, or your idea.” What a great way to differentiate for those higher level students in your class! Be sure to visit Michael Gorman’s post for even more phenomenal ideas.
