Wordle Activity

In Three Words...Edina Public Schools
**Directions for doing this activity are attached below!

Recently, I saw a YouTube post with a very interesting idea. The developers wanted their users to describe YouTube today in three words. Next, they wanted their users to describe, in three words, what they wanted YouTube to be in 5 years. The developers put both sets of words into a website called Wordle and they got a picture of what they should be working for in the next five years. Wordle takes any text and converts it into a picture, with the words that are used most appearing largest.

I took this same idea and brought it to Edina Public Schools. I made a Google Form and asked the employees three questions.

1. Describe Edina Public Schools in three words.
2. Describe your 2008-2009 school year in three words.
3. Describe your hopes for summer vacation in three words.

Here are a few pictures of how Edina employees (over 180 of them) answered those questions.
