The intricate foibles of my escapades with ICT

Fine with Feedly and Wordle

on March 7, 2014

I really like Feedly and have found it to be user friendly (if I can use it, it must be easy to use). I had some initial problems getting the recommended files to download but Darren McMullin  http://padawanteacher.wordpress.com/  sorted my problems out and I have not looked back. I have also discovered Wordle http://www.wordle.net/. These word clouds could be an interesting tool for students to use in classroom. I think it could be useful in a special education setting as it could provide a visual representation of the themes of a novel or passage the students were reading or it could highlight behaviors the students felt were appropriate. It could also be used to compare and contrast different things. This is an example I found on the Wordle gallery.
