Wordle – online software

I really enjoyed using this online software!  This is a Wordle of all the words on our main school website.   Click on the image to see it bigger, and be taken to the Wordle site.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.  (If you make a Wordle – share it with us! Leave us the link to it as a comment below)
