Discussion for Wordle

A wonderful tool for creating "word clouds" from text. You paste in a bunch of text - a poem, perhaps, a Presidential speech, a chapter from a book, anything. The more times the word appears in the text, the larger the font. You can play with the font face, color, and text orientation sixteen ways from Sunday. You can also print now - you don't have to take a screen shot.
A colleague doing her doctoral research on educational leadership interviewed a number of college presidents and provosts about their philosophies of educational leadership. The transcripts produced beautiful maps of their committment to students and learning. She printed them out in color, framed them, and gave them as gifts to the interviewees.
