In the process of working on my final project for EC&I 831, I wanted to spend a couple minutes playing with Wordle. I was curious to see just what words I have been using in blogging and it was an interesting experiment. I probably need more posts to really get a better idea of words I use very frequently or trends in my writing but as a tool, I can see the potential.
Have you used a word cloud for your writing? How about with students? Did they see the value or was it just a neat visual with minimal meaning
ETA: Apparently the code provided by Wordle did not want to work. Since I couldn’t see any reason why it wasn’t working to fix it, I replaced it with a screenshot of the image. Much easier anyway. It did work previously as a preview so I have no idea what happened.
