It’s very exciting for me that I am getting more comfortable with integrating technology in all of my schooling. For a presentation I just did I had the students write words they associated with our topic on an index card. I used those words and created a word cloud. Wordle tends to be the most used website for this. I personally couldn’t get Wordle to generate the words for me. So I copy and pasted the words onto Word It Out. It worked perfectly.
I was just super proud of myself to offer to do the word cloud. There is no way at the beginning of the school year I would have offered to do this part of the presentation (because of the tech aspect), but now I was excited to try something new. I’ve seen the word clouds, but never created one myself. Stuff like this really engages the students and this was a great way to show them what THEY created. Below is our word cloud. The students were given the term intellectual Disabilities.
I was just excited that it turned out so well and I wanted to share!!
