Responders have the option of writing in their ownanswer or clicking on one of the words already in the word cloud. The entire“garden” can be embedded in a blog or website, and you can also link to it. Thefact that anybody can answer anything to the question without identifyingthemselves makes it problematic — to say the least — in many school settings.But incertain mature situations, it could be very useful.Free Tools Challenge #10: Word clouds with Wordlecomes from Edublogs.Typein a user name intoTweet Topic Explorerand you’ll get a multi-colored wordcloud in “bubbles.” UsingWordles To Teach Foreign Language Writingis a useful study.
