I've been playing around with Tagxedo all day. Have you seen this yet? I thought I'd share. It takes words and turns them in to a "visually stunning word clouds." I was introduced to it at a teacher meeting the other day and I can't stop playing with it. I love the idea of turning words in to a visual image. It parallels quite a few things I'm teaching about right now- and I'm a big nerd who thinks words are really cool. (Obviously. Don't we all, who blog?) You can type in text, cut and paste or just enter a website address and it will pull all the words from the web page. I entered my blog address and this is what came up. Of course the word sewing is the largest. Two that crack me up are totally and hours- apparently I'm a valley girl who talks a lot about how long it takes to sew something. And where in the world did bubbles come from? You can also upload images and it will turn your cloud into that shape- hence the sewing machine. So much nerdy fun. Check it out.
