Fits & Fugues

Education can be so much more.

Wordle

I got to this tag cloud site, Wordle, from Chris Lehmann’s blog. It’s a Java-based site that allows you to customize the layout, font, and color of the word cloud you create. I have to warn you, though, it can evaporate your time as you constantly rework the layout and font. I had an idea of how I hoped some of the words would arrange themselves. I got pretty much what I wanted with Clayton Christensen’s article from the Hoover Institution, How Do We Transform Our Schools?, I’ve also started reading his book Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns.   More on that later this summer.

You can view the larger cloud at the Wordle site also. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
