I had a peaceful day off. I sat next to the lake and surfed the net. I discovered/read a lot of new blogs that I am going to post to my daily readings on this blog. Check for these changes soon.

I came across this while reading a blog....I so want one of these....can you say ENGAGED?

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.

I like this ‘word processor’ because it focuses on WRITING rather than tempting kids with text effects and graphics that take away from their available time in the lab. There is no spell checker, and there is no save or export option; the only form of output is a printed document (which looks wonderful!)
I could see this being used as a ROUGH DRAFT generator and to help kids organize their thoughts and sentences. They could then proofread that document, perhaps turn it in to be marked up, and then create the final deliverable in Microsoft Word.


Welcome to Dizzywood, another Exciting Virtual World for KIDS

There are all kinds of imaginative places to explore, fun Dizzywood secrets and stories to discover, and fun games to play, including puzzles, arcade games, dress up games, and much more. Dizzywood is safe for kids and free to play.
Dizzywood is a magical land where adventurers explore lost jungle temples, animals pilot airships and live in floating skylands, fairy-like sprites run around fantastic gardens, and the nasty Emperor Withering and his monster henchmen constantly scheme to conquer it all. Thousands of years ago, Dizzywood was a world populated by gentle elemental giants, playful sprites and bogies, and lumbering monsters. More recently, animals and humans discovered a way to travel from our world to Dizzywood through magical holes in the ground.
