'Wordle' is a fantastic resource for teachers and children alike. Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

I would definitely recommend using wordle in schools. It could be used in so many different ways, including on the front of handbooks (as used in the university), compiling useful adjectives for children that can assist them in their work and also for children to create themselves as a fun way of compiling a word bank for different topics. The example below shows the 'word cloud' I created with some of the words linking to ICT.
