My first professional blog

Multiliteracies: Wordle

Posted by Mariel Amez on February 13, 2009

 Creating a wordle was exciting. Finding out a way to make it a post, time consuming!! I used PDF creator to “print” it as a JPG image, inserted each image in PPP, then uploaded at Slideshare, got the embed code. By the end I realised one title was missing: The second slide corresponds to “Country Lovers”, by Nadine Gordimer, at http://www.wordle.net/gallery/wrdl/539856/Country_Lovers

I think this would be great to arouse interest in a story: look at the wordle and predict before reading. I am definitely going to use this tool.
