Wordling in the classroom.

I have discovered another excellent resource.
It is the brain child of Jonathan Feinberg and is a "toy" for generating word clouds.
My students love it (my school hasn't blocked it yet!) and we hope it will be a great way to learn key vocabulary and be creative. I'm hoping that using word clouds will improve my students' vocab retention.
It is a little early to comment yet, but time will tell. If anyone has any evidence to this, please let me know. Below is an example of a word cloud "Meine Schuluniform" using key vocabulary from the year 7 scheme of work.
Wordle: Meine Schuluniform
The next task is to get the students to create "Meine Traumuniform". Hopefully, I will post some next week.
