Tagul Word Cloud Tool
I recently discovered a great word cloud creation site called Tagul. Students can easily log on to their account using the Chromebooks by clicking on the Log in with Google button. I like Tagul because it allows students to choose from a variety of shape options for their word clouds, and it allows them to save all their work. I was excited to find this creation tool because one of my favorite sites Tagxedo does not work on the Chromebooks, so this is a great replacement. Check out Tagul here.
