The Wonderful World of WORDLE - You can use this cyber tool.
There is always something new in the digital world. What I would like to introduce to you are some products of the WORDLE website. WORDLE is a digital tool that has many uses. I am writing about it because it is a means of creating images of material that you may be tested upon whether in an academic course, preparing to take the firefighter's exam, a nursing test, or your driver's license. It is a MEMORY tool.
WORDLE is the website; its products are often called "Word Clouds". In today's e-mail, I received an application of the digital tool of WORDLE to the Inaugural Speeches of some presidents. The Inaugural speeches of Presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan and Abraham Lincoln are compared with regard to the dominant and re-occurring words in their specific speeches. It is an interesting analysis and a good example of what can be done with WORDLE. The url for this specific WORDLE is
I have also posted some WORDLES I have created regarding critical thinking and higher order thinking skills. Check out the WORDLE website. If you have a set of words that you need to remember, consider creating a "word cloud" to help your recall.
You can also use to to make posters, T-shirts, banners, etc. Caution, if you want more than one word to be connected with another, don't type them with any spaces between the words. Otherwise the words will be randomly arranged.
Be sure to do more than just look at this website. It is incredibly user-friendly. CREATE your own WORDLE; show it on the web; use it as a study aid, ad, greeting card. - You create it! You name it.
WORDLE is FREE!
Hope you share both your WORDLE creations and your reactions to this digital tool. Dr. CW
