Wordle your work

I've been aware of Wordle as a tool for a while but have never wordled a piece of my own 'real' work before. It's actually really helpful! The following is the Wordle I created of my project proposal which is looking into the impact of tutor-provided scaffolding within online discussion on students' communication:It's a relief to see that the main themes I wanted to investigate appear strongly in the resulting Wordle. If you're after a tool to help you pick out key themes and issues or to double-check that your argument is staying tight and focused... Wordle's not bad little academic tool, huh?

Wonder how many academic uses of it are taking place right now? Will have to see if I can track a few down! V.useful!
