Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds”

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes

If you like using images checkout Tag Galaxy a cool site that you may find useful to find images. What it does is to pull pictures tagged in Flickr with a certain keyword onto a virtual globe for presentation. I plan on exploring this site soon.

Thank you for your help this AM.
I'm learning a lot and trying to figure out how I can use this with my students.

I love playing with this...the only down side is that if you save it to the gallery it's live on the Internet so you can't be too personal. I guess if I wanted to use the family names I would print it out and not save.
