Redefining Instruction With Technology: Five Essential Steps

Wordle

Wordle

Wordle is a tool that allows you to generate “word clouds” from text. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently. You can arrange  your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. You can take a screen shot of the ‘Wordle’ and use this for a variety of purposes.

Can you Guess the Wordle?

Create wordles that are linked to any KLA and grouped according to particular to certain criteria or attributes.

Students could be divided up into teams and are encouraged search the internet for clues, and then come back as a team to decide on a final answer.

Tier the task by beginning with 1 common attribute – step it up to 3 or 4 for a more challenging task.

For example – the words below have 1 common attribute.

fashion_access

All  accessories

 

2 common attributesaust-mammals


All Australian Mammals

(Adding kangaroo and koala to the list would simplify this task)

3 common attributes

aust-athletes -whowongols at 2008 olympics

Australian athletes who all won gold at the 2008 Olympics
