This is my first time using wordle and I have enjoyed reading everyone's unique suggestions for its use. I used words to describe myself as my example. This is a great tool!

I'm having trouble sharing my wordle. I've followed the instructions but don't see the "file for images" link at the top tool bar menu on my wiki page. Can someone please assist?

I have used wordle before but more for spelling activities! I love the idea of using it as an introduction to a unit. I chose a popular poem by Robert Frost! Can you tell which one it is?http://laurabethmoore.wikispaces.com/Beth+Moore%27s+PortfolioI also love the jing program! WOW! I have used Powerpoint's screen shot before but never this! So excited to learn more within the next 5 weeks!

Great minds think alike Beth! You and I chose the same poem to demonstrate Wordle in the classroom. They arranged ours differently, take a look at mine and compare them side by side. http://edutopia-ntbootcamp.wikispaces.com/Aimee+Keller

Thanks for introducing me to a couple new tools, Wordle and Jing. I have soooooo much to learn and am grateful to be able to participate in this bootcamp from my couch.

I recently wrote out my determination towards 2030 when I will be really old. One part of the text pertained to what I hope to inspire in my students. I used both the entire text and just that section.

I really like what the first grade teacher did with the standards! I think I am going to do that w/ our standards and see what they really emphasize!

I created this wordle based off of a lesson that I taught on clouds.

I am familiar with wordle and have used it this past year for my yearbook class. I would have the students make wordles using words for the theme of the yearbook or making wordles using scripture that supports the theme. (I am at a Christian School.) But we liked the wordle best that we used to design our T-shirts. The very largest word was "yearbook2011". Every student's name in our yearbook class was placed in the wordle several times to make it the large words in the wordle. Then the secondary sized words were the theme-based words. The smallest words were the vocabulary used in creating our yearbooks.

For my lesson, I choose to use Biblegateway.com and look up Romans Chapter 1. I copied and pasted the whole chapter into wordle. I deleted chapter titles and the numbers that indicate each of the verses. The product is a visual of the theme and the important ideas of the chapter. The teacher could have the students identify the themes and main ideas. The students could then choose one or more of those identified words and explain how why it is important in this chapter of the Bible.
