Tagxedo is a fun word cloud site. Tagxedo word clouds can be created from text uploaded by the creator, blogs, tweets, and even tags. Tagxedo allows the user to customize their word cloud by changing color themes, fronts, and cloud shapes (which include many various shapes such as fruit, states, music symbols and animals) Tagxedo also allows the user to print and save the cloud that is created. The clouds show words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.
This is a fun way for students to present their work whether it be written compositions, poetry, historical summaries, or even mathematical explanations.
