I decided to start with something simple and Wordle is simple indeed. Just go to the website, type some text into a box, click a button and your text becomes a "Word Cloud". Anyone can do it. The real trick is in how it's used. After all, words that appear more frequently within the text appear larger in size within the word cloud, which means you can spend quite a bit of time experimenting with this concept. I created the example here by copying and pasting a Wordle Lesson Plan that was shared by Fran O'Leary on The Wordle Blog.
