Wordle Examples

I’ve been having a lot of fun with this!

 I’ve found some information form CDC on various diseases and made a Wordle of each one.  It is definitely easy to guess what disease each Worlde is assigned to, so if this were to be used in class it would have to be with younger students.

Here are some example of my Wordles:

I could for example do this as an intro on our class Wiki page or class Padlet and have the students click on the picture to go to the fact sheet I would want them to read as a way of grabbing their attention.  Or they could make the Wordle from an informational sheet they find interesting and share it with the class that way for the other students to read.

Wordle: Diabetes Mellitus: Type 1 What Is It?

I DID IT!!!

I finally figured out how to download and un-instal Java 7 for 6 again… since there was a problem with java 7 and Mac for some reason…

Anyway, here is my Wordle pic of an informational article on Type 1 Diabetes called: Diabetes Mellitus: Type 1 What Is It?

So now I am curious as to how teachers can use Wordle in a Health Education setting.

How about an assignment where the students are to find information sheets form trusted pages, i.e. CDC, and plug them into Wordle.  I wonder if one can recognize what disease each Wordle pic refers to?

I also wonder, if I as a teacher can make Wordles of the various diseases we’ve been going over and have the students recognize what disease each Wordle refers to?

hmmm…I might have to try this….
