Wordle – Beautiful Word-clouds

wordle.net Beautiful word clouds

This is a word-cloud the size of the word depends entirely on the amount of times that word appears in a text. This word-cloud is the life of Euphrasie Barbier and we can see here the frequent mentions of  God, Sisters, Mother and Congregation. Looking a little deeper we can see importance of Mary, Missions, family, spirit Oceania and France.

A great tool for students before they read an article to get an idea of the themes or focus of a particular text. Or to even explore there own writing.

In the video I have used wordle to compare two of the Canonical books in the new Testament. Looking particularly at the writings of Jesus’s Crucifixion. The first book I am comparing is Mark, the oldest of the Synoptic books, which has a very ‘history book’ account and comparing it to John which gives a very personal account of Jesus.
