Wordle Experiment, No. 2

Wordle is a nifty program that takes the frequency of words in a document and formulates them into a pretty design. It’s a great way to identify emerging themes in a body of work and they’re fun to make – especially with kids. Visit Wordle and design a wall decoration for your home or frame up some of your favorite words.

    I first discovered Wordle when I was teaching high school English. Word clouds can be fun and addicting! Another great site to try, and one that offers a bit more flexibility than Wordle, is Tagxedo.

      Thanks for introducing me to Tagxedo, Jeri! I didn’t know about this site and it looks fun too. I love when people put such energy into designing fun little services like this and then share it with the whole world so we can all play. I spent one afternoon making Wordles out of various bits of writing – it’s fun to see the word frequency and think, “Oops, didn’t realize I used all those naughty words!”
