Word Clouds in Education: Turn a toy into a tool | Ensino, Aprendizagem & Tecnologia | Scoop.it

When it comes to finding the deeper meaning in a text passage, a word cloud is a simple application that you might have seen as a cute bit of fluff rather than a useful academic tool. Most word cloud programs work in the same, straight-forward way; the more a word is used in the text, the bigger it is shown in the cloud. A glance at a cloud is an easy way to preview a passage, or to analyze text. So what does this mean for your courses?
