Create your own 'Tater "WORDLE"
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. SHARE WITH US!
F.A.Q. for educators about Wordle:
I'm a teacher, and I'd like to use Wordle in the classroom or send my students to use it at home. Can you filter or moderate Wordle's content?
The Wordle front page will never feature images or links that are inappropriate for classroom use. Therefore, it's possible to configure an institution's "site-blocking" software to keep Wordle safe for classroom use.
Simply have your networking administrator block the following base URLs:
If your filtering software only blocks per domain, then you're out of luck. It's either no Wordle at all for your school, or Wordle avec des gros mots.
