Using Word Clouds to Integrate Reading and Writing

Using Word Clouds to Integrate Reading and Writing
Word clouds are a relatively new and popular web 2.0 application which has proved highly versatile in helping teachers design more motivating reading and writing lessons.
This presentation aims to show participants the various word cloud tools available and to briefly compare and evaluate them as well as present some ideas for lessons which integrate reading and writing skills in a motivating and effective way for the teacher of languages.
This was a presentation at The Reform Symposium
The Reform Symposium was a free online conference for educators, administrators, parents and students. In 2010 the conference was focused on innovative practices in education and what role these practices can play in educational reform.
This is a recorded archive of one of the sessions at the Reform Symposium ... a global online event held over the last weekend of July 2010

Participatory Visualization with Wordle
http://www.research.ibm.com/visual/papers/wordle_final2.pdf
Participatory Visualization with Wordle
We discuss the design and usage of “Wordle,” a web-based tool for visualizing text.
Wordle creates tag-cloud-like displays that give careful attention to typography, color, and composition. We describe the algorithms used to balance various aesthetic criteria and create the distinctive Wordle layouts.
We then present the results of a study of Wordle usage, based both on spontaneous behaviour observed in the wild, and on a large-scale survey of Wordle users. The results suggest that Wordles have become a kind of medium of expression, and that a “participatory culture” has arisen around them.

Using Wordle in the classroom (1 of 2)
Text-analysis and visualization applications are terrific teaching tools!
I firmly believe that Wordles are the gateway drug to getting students interested in textual analysis.
In a word cloud, the most frequently used words are the largest words in the display, while words used less frequently are displayed in a smaller font. It’s so very simple, yet so very useful.
