How I Use It
I use it to have students review concepts. For instance, in Science after learning about density, students are asked to write a paragraph on density. They put in in a Wordle, which allows them to adjust the color, font and layout, then embed it into a portfolio or print it. I can quickly scan each Wordle, looking for key words such as volume, mass and density.
My Take
It is very simple to use and students really like to be able to personalize their product with different colors and font styles. It creates a professional looking document that is perfect for a webpage or cover for a project. One criticism of the program that I have is that it must be saved as an embed code or printed, it cannot be saved as a Word document or a PDF.
