Wordle is a tool for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.
We have some exciting things planned for ICT in 2014.
We will have a group of e-Leaders within the school. These students will embark on a journey of e-Learning with purpose and teaching their peers.
Wendy Stafford will also be running programmes with the middle and senior school students that embraces the use of web 2.0 tools and iPad apps in education.
