Word Clouds are incredibly useful in language intervention and academic instruction. There are a number of tools for creating them, and we’re listing a few of those here.
- Tagxedo has been around a long time and is popular for the ability to put the word cloud in pre-selected shapes or design your own shape.
- WordClouds.com is another website option for displaying the word cloud in various shapes and colors.
- Word Wanderer allows you to move the location of the words around a bit using a drag-and-drop feature.
Exporting Files & Data from Google
Here in the US, a large number of professionals are leaving their jobs for other opportunities. But what about all the NON-confidential and NON-proprietary materials they created? Google Takeout allows you to create and download zip files from Google Drive and other Google applications. You can learn more about it in this video from Richard Byrne, creator of the wonderful site, Free Tech For Teachers.
