Word clouds are another great tool for visual learners. A word cloud takes a selection of text and organizes it into a design. The really cool thing about word clouds is that the size of each word is based upon the frequency it appears in the text. One can customize the shape, font, and color of a cloud (based upon the application used). There are many word cloud generators to chose from, but I like Tagul and Wordle best. Making a word cloud is a simple as copying and pasting a selection of text into the chosen generator.
Here is a word cloud I created using Tagul, and I customized it based upon the subject. Can you guess what this word cloud is about?
