Word Cloud Makers Are Here

After hearing about the news that Wordle is currently in limbo of being relaunched for live creation purposes again, I took it upon myself to "Tweet" about the alternative tools I use for creating and designing word clouds in the K-16 classroom setting.  I too, was very happy with Wordle, but it is amazing how many choices we have to tap into with other web 2.0 literacy tools that can accomplish the same job, and even sometimes better!

Here is my essential "Word Cloud" free list to support your instructional technology efforts to promote and flourish literacy in your classroom to generate unique student and educator projects.

Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.


Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…

Smartboard Training at the University Level

This week I will be offering Smartboard trainings to our local universities. I have put together a link list of "adult learner" content sites that professors and instructional trainers can easily use with their college students to enrich their curriculum offerings. This is just a "starter list" and I will continue to add to this list as resources are found and shared from others from around the world. Thanks to my social network of Twitter friends for the development of the Smartboard resources as a true global team!
