Word Clouds, 6-12

Tagxedo turns words—famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes—into a graphic. Words are sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence in the body of text. Students and teachers can make tag clouds in real time and re-spin to their liking; save the tag cloud as images for printing and sharing; look at all variants of the clouds in a gallery and choose the one they want. Other features include quickly switching between different colors and themes and changing the cloud to selected shapes such as a heart, star, cloud, oval.
