Can you use your own words and create new ones?
Yes. What's great about Wordle is that a student can use it as a summary tool. Let's say I ask a student to summarize a science chapter. What they can do is paste a section of the chapter into wordle and it will produce all of the key and most used words in that section. The more a word is used the large it becomes in the wordle. It would be fun to use at the end of a unit!
