Word Clouds

Tools like these, at first glance, may seem like they have little use. Think for a few moments and brainstorm some uses for “word clouds”. What could they be constructively used for?


Project Requirements:

1. Copy the text of a speech, song, short story, or poem that you like into the window of at least 3 sites.

2. Take a screen cap of the word cloud and post to your blog as an image under “Word Clouds”.

3. Come up with a short list of ways to ‘assess’ the different websites. What qualities do you think make them effective and ineffective? What makes them attractive or unattractive?
