Tagxedo

What Tagxedo spit out for The Sacred Profession – I picked the shape and colors

I wanted to share a cool resource from this weeks classroom tour (coming later this afternoon!) teacher Nik Casey. She turned me on to a site called Tagxedo which lets you either take websites, articles or type in words and produce images like the one above I made by inputing this blog’s website. A world of ideas opened in terms of classroom applications. You could use the site as a means for students to share information about themselves in a public way (see an example in Ms. Casey’s classroom tour later today). You could also use images of authors and historical figures to create a nice visual/verbal description (see below).

Or of current events:

So many ideas. Check it out and if you come up with something awesome please share it with us! Thanks Nik!
