How to use Wordle and Rss

January 25, 2010

In the next few weeks I have to give several teacher training courses. One of the Web 2.0 tools I love to explore with my participants is Wordle

Do you want to know what has been going on in our Help Desk tab?

These are the main words used in our Help Desk. To create this word list I choose the option “Enter the URL of any blog, blog feed, or any other web page that has an Atom or RSS feed” added our Help Desk Rss feed http://multiliteracies.ning.com/group/helpdesk/forum?feed=yes&x… and Wordle created a bunch of words related to your Rss feed.

Can you create more Wordle images using different Rss feeds?

    In ESP, the meaning often takes over from the surface language … so I’m using Wordle next week hopefully to turn that around. I think I can feel a blog post coming on :-)))

    Jennifer – it strikes me that there are only two sizes in this diagram, and I suspect the small words appear only once, the big ones twice, in the original sample. If that’s the case it doesn’t really tell us much at this stage.<br><br>It would be interesting to see if, or how, the picture changes after another week or so. I know, I know – I should try it myself . . . I’ll have a go tomorrow, it’s bedtime here 🙂
