Wordle: Web 2.0
This semester I have been studying some of the unique Web 2.0 tools that are freely available.  One includes Wordle.  This application that generates word clouds.  It allows the user to plug in any number of words related to a topic.  These words don’t even have to be related to any sort of topic.  Some possible uses for Wordle include spelling lists, brainstorming ideas, book reports, random thoughts, and word doodling.   Once a set of words are listed the user has the option to change fonts, colors, language, and can randomize the organization of the cloud.  When the word cloud is finished Wordle provides a HTML code which can be embedded into a blog such as this one or a wiki.  With Wordle the options are truly limitless.
