Wordles

Right, I’m now catching up with posting materials for most of my classes. Life will be so much simpler when I have access in school!

First up is the Wordle version(s) of George Orwell’s ‘Marrakech’. (You can find and play with Wordle here: WORDLE.NET ā€” You might also like Tagxedo…) Thanks to my Twitter network for creating these!

What the Wordles show is which words are used more, and this is indicated by their size relative to other words. This is not a perfect science, but I do find it interesting that ‘donkeys’ are mentioned more often than ‘Arabs’ despite the fact is an Arab country… Have you any thoughts on why this is?

Coming next, the slides… They’ll be posted in a wee while. šŸ˜‰
