TagXedo - Makes Wordle look Pretty Boring

Wordle has long been the staple of many educators and I have to say I use it a lot .  I even put together the ultimate guide to Wordle for educators earlier this year with heaps of great Wordle activities and alternatives.  But I think I am about to jump ship from Wordle to Tagxedo.

Tagxedo turns words -- famous speeches, news articles, slogans and themes, even your love letters -- into a visually stunning tag cloud, words individually sized appropriately to highlight the frequencies of occurrence within the body of text.

It really looks a great deal better than Wordle and if nothing else is definitely worth a look.  Totally free loads of creative options for it so check it out here.
