How I Use It
I used Tagxedo with my kiddos to teach them about text. We discussed font, style, size, color, etc. We then used our collective thinking caps to create a list of words that they could use to create a unique product.
My Take
I liked the ability for kids to make individual changes to the finished product -- this helped create uniqueness -- but still kept the concept unified. There were slight issues ..... it is an INTERNET activity afterall ... but overall the lesson went well and the kids were actively engaged.
