Wordle me this

Wordle is the latest fun tool that has cropped up on the Internet. It makes 'clouds' from words you provide, or the tags you keep in del.icio.us.

I am not really sure how I would use this tool in a teaching context. Cathy Nelson thinks it can be used in writing classes to look at how words are used.

What I find interesting from a personal perspective is that I am saving few midwifery web sites in del.icio.us. The majority of my tags are to do with professional development, life-long learning, e-learning and PLE. This probably reflects my current interests as well as the fact that I read few midwifery blogs compared to education blogs.

Hello mich.l

Thank you very much for sharing your tags. I tried to translate this into Belgium so you could read it, but just couldn't find a translator that would do it so I apologize for that.

best wishes, Sarah
