Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 7, 2013 5:56 PM

Mike Gorman returns with 125 ways to use Word Clouds in your classroom. Although focused on Wordle any of the many tools available to create word clouds could be used. Gorman has taken the time to organize these ways into the following categories:

* All Subjects

* Science

* Language Arts

* Social Studies

* Math

* Health and PE and Consumer Sciences

* Art and Music 

* Foreign Languages
* Applied Arts

* Careers

Below are two of the 125 suggestions. The first one is for science.

* Create a simple food chain showing representing each population of animal by word size. In fact create a whole food web of an area or biome. Use advanced number feature.

And this one is for social studies.

* Using statistical information from a place such as CIA World Fact Book create word clouds that illustrate country statistics such as resources, ethnic groups, religions, languages, etc.  You may wish to use advanced number feature to illustrate prominence of each.

"Education—there’s an app for that. In fact, there are hundreds of thousands of apps on the market designed for teaching and learning. As more schools bring tablets into the classroom, educators like Genia Connell are finding that apps are game changers.

 

“I have yet to see anything in education that generates excitement and motivates students the way tablets do,” says the third-grade teacher from Leonard Elementary School in Troy, Michigan. Connell points to e-reading apps like Storia that not only engage students but also level the playing field for struggling readers. “Differentiation has become easier with apps because so many of them have built-in levels of complexity.”

 

By many accounts, some of the most powerful education apps are used for teaching reading and supporting differentiation for students with disabilities. But their capabilities are endless. Developers have created easy-to-use programs that serve as learning platforms for students and as organization tools for teachers. Here are 50 fabulous apps that are helping to change the face of education."

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, June 7, 2013 3:42 AM

A great tool for digital storytelling with several sharing possibilities. Students can work collaboratively on these projects; they can create e-portfolios with Glogster; they can use a variety of media to create their projects which works well with differing language levels, it can also be used for their own learning. It's worth exploring as it has a lot of potential for both formal and informal learning.
