Word cloud

Word cloud

Word clouds display keywords and concepts related to a specific topic. They turn words into pictures to help us visualise and memorise them. To create a word cloud, simply enter the list of words you want to use, then choose a format from a list of predefined options - or upload your own images.

While creating a word cloud (for example, when summarising a topic)

  •     students can create;
  •     teachers will know what students remembered from the topic;
  •     the completed word cloud can become part of the decoration in the classroom.
