Teacher Review for Wordle

Wordle is an easy to use cite that allows students to create visually appealing word clouds which are not that different from mind maps.

How I Use It
I used this to help students develop their vocabulary knowledge. Students choose one vocabulary word we are studying and then think of synonyms, related concepts, or antonyms to include in their word clouds. Then I have the students print out their clouds and we display them on a word wall around the classroom. Every feature I have tried on the website has worked and my students are able to navigate it easily.
My Take
I think this is a great site to teach students new vocabulary words and concepts. I liked every aspect of the cite, especially the option of printing out the word clouds. It very similar to mind maps and thus can be used at any stage of the lesson. It can even be used as an assessment.
