Wordle

My Educational Philosophy

Wordle is a toy 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.

Here are some examples of word clouds: http://www.wordle.net/gallery

This word cloud reflects my educational philosophy
