What is a wordle?  A wordle is another way of organising ideas and words into a word cloud. Wordle choose the layout and you can adapt it, but it cannot be made into pre-froemd shapes like Tagxedo. 
Wordle also makes words bigger if they appear more than once. We discovered that this was a good way to see what words help define a topic. It also showed us that a lot of us had the same ideas about celebrations. 

For example, when we did a wordle for celebrations, using the same words we did for Tagxedo, certain words were BIGGER!  We decided that this meant that these words were more important in our brainstorm about celebrations. What do you think?

  1. Gathering and organising information so you can then work out emerging concepts is an exciting and rewarding process and the foundation for any writing. Thanks for introducing me to this site.

  2. What a great way to present your collective thoughts and ideas. The colours and dynamic positioning of words really draws the reader in.
