If you haven’t come across wordle yet then it’s worth taking a look.  But what to do with it?

Anna Pires of IH Braga gave a seminar on using wordle with classes about a year ago, but fortunately, you don’t need to rely on my notes from the session as Simon Thomas has already blogged it and added to it with some Nik Peachy ideas.

So take a look at Simon’s post here:

    Hi David,
    I use Wordle all the time and can’t recommend it enough. It’s excellent for pre-reading activities as well as vocab reviews. By editing the text that you enter you can easily change which words are bigger etc (which I’ve also made good use of to design my website, create business cards etc.).
    I’m really sorry to have missed Anna’s workshop but will check out the notes.

    Ooh, thanks for the plug, David!
    Trust all is well & very best wishes,

    Simon
