Wordle

While looking online at the AASL (American Association of School Librarians) website today, I came across a link for a PPT presentation listing 52 ways to use Wordle in the classroom (and tips!).  This was fabulous!!!   It is shared with Creative Commons permission and can be viewed at the following link:

They’ve done a fabulous job coming up with fun and inventive ways to use this tool.  Kids love it, it’s so easy.  Just think…  Put a story, or the first page or two of the new novel you’re introducing, into Wordle and use that with your intro to draw them in and make them wonder…  Use it with their essays so they can see what their focus was on — were they all over the place or did they have just a few main ideas?  What were the key points in a presidential speech?  AMAZING ideas that span grade levels — there is something for everyone!
