Hi there tout la gang,

We don't have much to say about research in practice at the Café right now

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

Judi showed me wordle last night -- she is going to use it with a group of students in the St. Christopher House Adult Literacy Program -- and I made this word cloud of the café.

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. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

Here is where you can find this wordle in the gallery. I saved the image above as a screen grab (command + shift + 3 or 4 on a mac, and this or this on windows) and then saved it again as a jpeg. They give you code for a thumbnail version but it is very small.

Have a great weekend. Do not stay inside playing on your computer the WHOLE weekend :-)
