Wordle Uses
This is a wonderful quick slideshow that gives you – 48 – of course – ways to use Wordle in your classroom. Wordle is free and you can use it to warm your kids up before a lesson or even as an assignment for your students! Be cautious, however, as there are some inappropriate Wordle examples online so you may prefer to just use this yourself (just not on the fly in front of your students:))

Some of my favorite examples:
-paste your syllabus into Wordle – it creates a word cloud with the most important words from your syllabus in larger, darker text – great way to emphasize the most important components of your course!

-have students write autobiographies or sentences about themselves – paste text into Wordle to see words that tend to come up often – might be enlightening for some of your students
