How I Use It
I've been using this website, and most recently it's app counterpart Cloudart for years with success. In my nutrition class, students keep a one week food log (using the my fitness pal app). Upon completion Of the journal, students type their foods into the generator and are given a graphic representation of their diet over the course of the week. Because commonly occurring words appear larger they are able to analyze their macro and micro nutrient intake and explore deficiencies.
My Take
Wordle.net is an interactive website that allows students to create a personalized visual representation of acquired material. Students are able to input words and phrases into the generator and will receive a graphic of their ideas, customizable with various fonts, layouts and colors. Words that are entered more than once appear larger in the wordle, helping to identify important themes and patterns. This website serves as a fast pace way for students to review material with a very aesthetic result.
