West German Wordle

on

I’ve been on a conference this weekend for Recently Qualified Teachers (i.e., if you’re in your second year of teaching). It has reinspired me! I’ve had a happy – and possibly sad – half hour searching for ICT tools on the web. This is the result of playing around with an old favourite:

This is a ‘Wordle’ – you paste in an amount of text and it counts how many times words are used to create a ‘word cloud’. I pasted in the text from my West German Pottery Collection entry, played around with the settings and ta da! West German Wordle heaven.  It’s a great tool for English teachers – try putting in the Poems from Other Cultures, especially Limbo – but probably not much interest to anyone else…
