This podcast”How to Use Wordle” is intended for  any audience–from secondary students to educators; either way, it will  be informative for any audience.

The software I used was Screencast-O-Matic. I then uploaded the file into Movie Maker for editing then to YouTube. After that, I embedded my video here.

My goal is to show people how to use this simple Web 2.0 tool to enhance their own lessons. Teachers can also teach their students to use Wordle so the students can implement this tool into their own assignments. Wordle can be used for simple vocabulary list, a creative project or formative assessment. So many possibilities exist with this tool. It is also very simple to embed your Wordle word cloud into other documents and presentations.

This assignment was difficult because of technical issues I experienced and difficulty with editing. However, I now know how to screencast and feel this is a valuable tool for the 21st century classroom.
