Dragon Words

Word Foto and Tagxedo word clouds

The Task:

Students listened to different sounds clips (provided from website www.pond5.com). They then had to brainstorm and list words that either described the sound or the emotions they felt when they listened to them. They did not have to guess what made the sound. They then worked in two groups, one group used www.tagxedo.com to create word clouds while the other group used the iPad app WordFoto to create word clouds. They had to choose an appropriate image and colour scheme to match their perceptions of the object.
