Word clouds tools have a great importance in education. Many teachers use them to perform several learning activities for their students. Generally speaking, a word cloud is a graphical representation of word frequency. It basically features the prominent words that are so often cited in a piece of text. I have already reviewed some popular word cloud generators here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but have not really gone into details as to how teachers can use them in education. This post, however, compensates for that shortage of information and provides you with a set of tips together with a list of free tools to help you discover and learn more about the educational uses of word clouds generators.
